Effects of a CD-ROM educational program on sexual knowledge and attitude


, : Effects of a CD-ROM educational program on sexual knowledge and attitude. Computers, Informatics, Nursing 23(4): 214-219

This study evaluated a CD-ROM educational program in sexual violence prevention for middle school students. A randomized control-group pretest-posttest design was used. Seventy-nine students were randomly assigned to either an experimental (n = 39) or control (n = 40) group. The experimental group watched the CD-ROM, whereas the control group did not. Both groups were pretested for the levels of knowledge and attitude about sexual violence prevention prior to intervention. A CD-ROM titled Educational Program for the Prevention of Sexual Violence was used for the intervention. The instrument contains 32 true-false items that measure knowledge level and 20 items comprising a four-point Likert-type scale that measure the attitude to sexual violence. There was a significant increase in knowledge in the experimental group, while no differences on attitude were found between the experimental and control groups. A CD-ROM-based program can be effective for delivering instructions on sexual violence prevention in the classroom.
