1985-86 Field Test of Values and Choices, Search Institute's Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Demonstration Project
Investigators: Michael J. Donahue, Peter L. Benson, & Richard J. Gordon

Values and Choices is a 15-session, values-based, parent- involved, video-assisted school curriculum for seventh and eighth graders, sponsored by Search Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Field tests of the curriculum were conducted in public schools in Denver, Colorado; Detroit, Michigan; Minneapolis and Grand Rapids, Minnesota; and the San Francisco Bay area of California. A pretest/posttest/ delayed posttest design, with a control group and using a confidential self-administered questionnaire, was employed. Hypotheses tested pertained to issues such as sexual restraint, sexual coercion, sexual knowledge, communication with parents about sex, sexual attitudes, and intention to engage in sexual intercourse. Respondents were 1,713 at pretest (Data Set No. D1), 1,716 at posttest (Data Set No. D2), and 1,519 at delayed posttest (Data Set No. D3). About two-thirds of the respondents at each testing were in the experimental group, and about one-third in the control group. Approximately 44% of the respondents at pretest can be linked to both posttest and delayed posttest data. The remainder of respondents cannot be linked because of an emphasis of confidentiality over linkage in the data- collection design. An identical questionnaire at each testing yielded 188 variables per testing, for a total of 564.
