This research was part of a larger longitudinal study of chronically ill rural women to determine if computer technology could be effective in allowing the women to take control of their own well-being, including finances. The current study examined whether chronically ill rural women can effectively use on-line personal finance educational programming, as measured by a financial literacy assessment pretest compared to a post-test assessment consisting of the same questions in the pretest. The women were randomly divided into three groups: (a) an intensive intervention group where participants had an on-line series of lessons on finances, access to experts, and a social support discussion board; (b) an intermediate intervention group where participants had only the on-line lessons; and (c) a control group. Results indicate the intensive and the intermediate intervention strategies are effective compared to the control group in producing a significant increase between pre-test and post-test scores.
