The Bureau of Educational Research and Service at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) conducted the 1981-82 evaluation of the Tennessee Nutrition Education and Training Program. Instruments developed, field tested, and revised by the UTK team were used to assess the nutrition knowledge, attitudes, practices, and perceptions of students receiving instruction from teachers participating in the project. This report of the project evaluation is divided into five sections. Section 1 discusses the evaluation design and section 2 reports on assessment of student outcomes. Section 3 examines the teacher's log of nutrition education activities. Section 4 details results from the Teaming to Teach Nutrition Questionnaire, and section 5 reports on end-of-year assessments by project personnel. Also included are 12 tables, references, and six appendices of materials used in the project. (JM)
