Sexuality Education: A Handbook for the Evaluation of Programs.
This document is the fifth volume of a six-volume report on sexuality education. This volume is based on the methods used and the experiences encountered in the evaluation of the nine exemplary sexuality education programs contained in the first volume of the report. The present volume discusses the need for evaluation of sexuality education programs; selection of program characteristics and outcomes to be measured; experimental designs; survey methods; questionnaire design; and procedures for administering questionnaires, analyzing data, and using existing data. The volume focuses primarily upon the evaluation of sexuality education programs in the classroom for young people but also discusses the evaluation of peer education programs, one-day conferences, and programs for parents. The chapters discuss sequentially the important steps in conducting evaluation research. The appendix contains questionnaires and assessment inventories concerned with knowledge, attitudes and values, behavior, course evaluation, and course impact, and includes a course assessment questionnaire for parents. Thirteen figures and tables are included. (NB)
