What is the general population being studied (any demographics: were these mostly in the U.S., what ethnic group is represented, etc.)?
How was the sample selected (Were all respondents used? Was the selection random?)?
How was the questionnaire used tested (what were the psychometric properties of the data collection instrumentation)?
What statistical method was used to analyze the data?
What were the findings (include their strength and direction, plus any identified ethical concerns)?
What was your assessment of the study design?
How do these findings fit within your area of interest?
Add a paragraph that elaborates on how you believe one of these prevention programs might work or be applied within your community. Provide detailed examples that explain why, based on your topic for the Signature Assignment.
