Knowledge and Attitudes of Drug Usage. Grades 4-12.
Instructional Objectives Exchange, Los Angeles, CA.
This collection of cognitive and affective objectives, and related measurement instruments, concerns knowledge of and attitudes toward prescription drugs, tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs. It describes procedures used in developing, field testing, administering, and scoring the tests. Objectives are listed by grade range: secondary (grades 7-12) and intermediate (grades 4-6). Each of the 12 objectives includes a page reference to the appended test. Measures can be grouped into six categories (1) knowledge; (2) direct report--students react to statements supporting or discouraging drug use, describe local drug availability, and report confidentially their own or their friends' drug use; (3) indirect--situational tests; (4) archival--school staff report drug abuse referrals to public agencies; (5) observation--teachers record suspected drug-related symptoms of students; and (6) planning information--students rate the credibility of various sources of drug information.
