Title

PETSA (Personal Awareness through Self Awareness) meets REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture): Assessment of a tutorial on sexual assault using web and paper surveys

Presentation Type

Poster

Abstract

The purpose of this research project was to gather information on University of Montana student perception of the PETSA (Personal Empowerment Through Self Awareness) tutorial and to compare electronic and paper survey methods. To that end, we distributed 1000 surveys to students to large classes in several departments. Half of the surveys were phrased in first person (?I think?) and half were phrased in the third person (?Other students think?) in order to tease apart student?s personal opinions from what they believe their peers opinions are. Out of the original 1000 surveys, 109 were returned and 107 used in analysis. Generally, participants thought the information from PETSA was important, but didn?t feel that they or other students learned a lot from it. Results also indicated that the average participant does not feel safe from sexual violence but believes that other students feel safer than they do, and that knowing most students have taken the PETSA tutorial does not help them to feel safer.
