Abstract

A Solomon five group design was employed to investigate the effects of the “Every Kid Aware" drug education and prevention program upon the attitudes of 106 sixth grade students. The program was developed to give students the facts about drugs, drug abuse, and drug dependence that they may be better able to make intelligent decisions about their use. The five groups designated as the implementation and comparison groups were evaluated with an instrument developed by Dave Kingsley, Chuck Schmidt, Cindy Keller, and Mark Tomanek. Three null hypotheses were tested. The first hypothesis was the difference between the post-means of a group of sixth graders who received drug education information and a group who did not, will not be statistically significant (as determined by pre- and post-assessment). The second hypothesis was the difference between the post-means of a group of sixth graders who received drug education information and a group who did not, will not be statistically significant (as determined by post-assessment). The third hypothesis was the differences among the post-means of those groups of sixth graders who received drug education information and those who did not, will not be statistically significant. The results of statistical analysis indicate all null hypotheses could not be rejected at the .05 level of significance.
