Abstract

The present attemptt is focused on development of a series of four printed instructional modules on four different topics related to parenthood education viz physiology of reproduction, preparation for marriage, preparation for parenthood and responsibilities during parenthood. On the basis of content of each module a battery of four knowledge tests was constructed i.e. one test for each module. Each test was a combination of multiple choice and true-false type test items and a score of one was allotted to each correct response. The printed modules were pre tested on 10 non-sampled neo-literate rural girls and then field tested on 30 neo-Iiterate rural girls from two villages i.e. Malian and Kaoni of Muktsar district of Punjab. Difference of pre and post scores were considered as gain in knowledge scores. The average scores were worked out for testing knowledge gain on each module. Ranks were assigned on the basis of critical difference. Analysis of variance was also calculated. All the modules were found to be effective in terms of gain in knowledge. However, maximum gain in knowledge was reported through module III on ‘Preparation for parenthood’ and the least gain was reported for module I on ‘Physiology of reproduction
