Exploring College Student Health Literacy: Do Methods of Measurement Matter?
Mackert, Michael; Champlin, Sara; Mabry-Flynn, Amanda
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v54 n3 p275-285 2017
The purpose of this study was twofold: Assess health literacy among college students using an accepted assessment tool (the Newest Vital Sign, NVS) and utilize different methods of administration to explore strategies for practically increasing usage of health literacy measurement tools--which currently emphasize in-person, oral administration. Findings suggest the NVS may be employed on platforms more convenient for college health educators, notably through online or paper-and-pencil methods, such as health center paperwork.
