An Evaluation of the Relationship between Cognitive and Affective Taxonomic Outcomes of a University Personal Health Education Program.
Valois, Robert F.; And Others
This study evaluated the relationships between cognitive and affective taxonomic outcomes of a required college level course in personal health education. Additional purposes of the study were to: (1) devise valid assessment instruments to facilitiate measurement of cognitive achievement and affective change using the Taxonomy of Educational Objectives; (2) determine the effects of a required course in personal health education on the knowledge and attitudes of college students on five selected subscale topics; and (3) evaluate the relationship between hierarchical patterns of the cognitive and affective domains of the Taxonomy of Educational Objectives within the realm of health education. Subjects included approximately 100 students from two personal health education classes in the instrumentation phase. Subjects in the experiemental phase consisted of approximately 506 students. A 138-item Personal Health Knowledge and Attitude instrument was used to assess personal health knowledge and attitudes and health locus of control. Based on the results of the study, it was concluded that the required course in personal health was effective in improving the health knowledge and control of college students and that a relationship does exist between the cognitive and affective taxonomies.
