Preventing Unplanned Pregnancy and Completing College: An Evaluation of Online Lessons. 2nd Edition
Antonishak, Jill; Connolly, Chelsey
National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy
The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy published free online lessons that help students take action to prevent unplanned pregnancy and complete their education. From the fall of 2012 to the spring of 2014, approximately 2,800 students took the online lessons and participated in pre- and post-lesson evaluation surveys at four colleges--Cincinnati State Technical and Community College (OH), Georgia Perimeter College (GA), Miami Dade College (FL), and Palo Alto College (TX). The National Campaign analyzed the survey data to examine the differences in knowledge, attitudes, and behavioral intent with regard to preventing unplanned pregnancy. Findings for this evaluation were very strong overall, and show that the lessons are generally effective across a diverse group of students. In addition, on the post-lessons survey, eight in 10 students agreed or strongly agreed they are more aware of ways to prevent pregnancy as a result of the lessons, and six in 10 students agreed or strongly agreed that the lessons helped them make a decision about birth control.
