Abstract or Summary
  • This study was concerned with the effect of additional time in health instruction for 9th graders at the junior high school level. A 120-item questionnaire, developed after extensive review of related tests, was mailed to a jury of ten health subject matter experts. The evaluations of all the items made by the health experts were sent back to the investigator. This evaluation was combined with the results of item analysis to formulate a 45-item comprehensive health knowledge test and parallel health interest inventory. The data obtained for this research were acquired by administering a health knowledge test and a parallel health interest inventory to 279 students of school districts A and B. Pre-test and post-test were conducted for the purpose of comparing the effect of additional time in health instruction. The multiple regression analysis was used in the comparison of (1) the pre-score of school district B with the pre-score of school district A; (2) the pre-score of school district B with the post-score of school district A; and (3) the pre-score of school district A with the post-score of school district A. The result of this study revealed that with the additional health classes taken, the higher the health knowledge score; girls scored higher than boys; the higher the score of students' word knowledge, the higher the score of students' health knowledge. It was found that 9th graders who had a nine-week block in health in the 7th and 8th grades or in the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades in the junior high school had a greater opportunity for the acquisition of health knowledge than the 9th graders who had a nine-week block only in health at the 7th grade level. There was a negligible relationship between health knowledge and health interest.
