Handbook for Evaluating HIV Education.
IOX Assessment Associates, Culver City, CA.
Although considerable effort is being expended on school-based HIV prevention education, few data are available to suggest whether these programs are successful. Developed to help educators evaluate the quality of their HIV prevention programs, this handbook includes information on evaluation designs and measurement tools for collecting data on the basic program components of policy development, curriculum design, teacher training, and student outcomes. The handbook comprises eight interrelated booklets. The first booklet presents five key program-evaluation guidelines, while the second focuses on developing and revising HIV policies. The third and fourth booklets present guidelines for appraising HIV curricula and staff development programs, respectively. The fifth and sixth booklets describe assessment instruments for measuring student outcomes for grades 5-7 and 7-12, respectively, focusing on HIV-related knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. The seventh booklet offers seven guidelines for selecting and working with an external evaluator to appraise an HIV education program. The last booklet presents five guidelines to assist in reporting results of evaluation studies related to HIV education. Three sample evaluation reports are included to illustrate use of the guidelines. (MLH)
