Description

The purpose of this research is to analyze archival data collected from community health education majors attending Minnesota State University Mankato, who have completed a self-inventory asking them to indicate their level of confidence in performing health education competencies. Methods: Archival data used for this study involved students’ self-inventories completed during 2011-2014. Background questions on the self-inventory included GPA, ethnicity, and gender. Students were asked to indicate their confidence in their ability to perform health education competencies, using a Likert scale. Health education competencies assessed included: 1) assess individual and community needs for health education; 2) plan health education strategies, interventions, and programs; 3) implement health education, strategies, interventions, and programs; 4) conduct evaluation research related to health education; 5) administer health education strategies, interventions, and programs; 6) serve as a health education resource person; 7) communicate and advocate for health and health education. Data was entered into Excel and will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. Results: Forthcoming. Conclusions: To be determined.
