Food...Your Choice. Levels 1, 2, and 3. Summative Evaluation. Technical Report No. 98.
Illinois Univ., Chicago. Chicago Circle Campus.
A summative evaluation study of the National Dairy Council's learning system, "Food...Your Choice," was designed to address three concerns: (1) effectiveness of the learning system in enhancing elementary school students' understanding of nutrition; (2) effect of instruction in nutrition on student attitudes about nutrition and student behavior in relation to food choices; and (3) effect of a new curriculum upon the ongoing instruction program in the schools. Results indicated that the curriculum did significantly increase students' nutrition knowledge. Also, students chose more nutritious snacks and ate more nutritious foods at lunch. Finally, the learning environment, as perceived by students, did not appear to be changed by the curriculum. (JH)
