ABSTRACT:
An experimental study with two groups pre test and post test design was undertaken in selected school in Bangalore, Karnataka to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching program on road safety measures among primary school children. Total numbers of 100 primary school children were selected to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching program regarding road safety measures, the level of knowledge regarding road safety measures before and after structured teaching program and also to study the association between socio demographic variables and level of knowledge in experimental and control group. In pretest, 2% of children had inadequate knowledge, 98% had moderately adequate and none of had adequate knowledge. In posttest, none of had inadequate knowledge, 4% had moderately adequate and 96% had adequate knowledge for experimental group. Same like for control group in pretest, 18% of children had inadequate knowledge, 82% had moderately adequate and none of had adequate knowledge .In posttest 4% of children had inadequate knowledge, 94% had moderately adequate and 2%had adequate knowledge. This indicates that experimental group has more knowledge than the control group after administration of structured teaching program The result shows that the structured program was highly effective as the P value is 0.000 and the unpaired T value is 15.73. The mean difference of the experimental group (14.2) is higher than the mean difference of the control group (3.48). It indicates that the experimental group has more knowledge than the control group after administering structured teaching program. There is a significant relationship between the level of knowledge and the socio demographic variables such as mother’s educational status, father’s educational status and religion for control group. In experimental group there is significant relationship between the level of knowledge and the socio demographic variables such as mother’s educational status and father’s educational status.
