A study to assess the effectiveness of computer assisted teaching on the level of knowledge regading Anaemia among adolescent girls in selected schools at Poigai OBJECTIVES The objectives of the study were, To assess the knowledge on anaemia among the adolescent girls in the intervention and non intervention group. 6 1) Determine the effectiveness of computer assisted teaching on the knowledge of anaemia among the adolescent girls. 2) Associate the level of knowledge on anaemia with selected background variables among the adolescent girls in both groups. HYPOTHESIS There is a significant increase in the level of knowledge on anaemia among the adolescent girls who receive computer assisted teaching than those who did not. OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS Assess The art of estimating the level of knowledge on anaemia among adolescent girls. Effectiveness The increased level of knowledge brought by the teaching of anaemia and is measured in terms of significant change. Knowledge The information obtained from the adolescent girls regarding anaemia and is measured using structured self administered questionnaire. Anaemia Decrease in oxygen carrying capacity of the red blood cells. Computer - Assisted Teaching on Anaemia It is an instructional package using laptop Modules on selected aspects of anaemia namely definition, causes, signs and symptoms, treatment, prevention and complications which lasts for 30 minutes. 7 Adolescent Girls Girls who have attained menarche and are studying in 9th standard. Assumptions 1) Health education promotes early health seeking behaviour. 2) Knowledge on health has an impact in reducing morbidity and mortality. 3) Usage of modern educational media enhances quick and effective practices. Limitations  The evaluation of teaching was limited to one post test administered one week after the teaching.  The study was limited to 9th standard girls CONCEPTUAL FRAME WORK BASED ON J.W. KENNY’S OPEN SYSTEM MODEL The study was based on J W kenny’s open system model. All living system are open, in that there is continual exchange of matter, energy and information. Open system has varying degree of interaction with the environment from which the system receives input and gives back output in the form of matter energy and information. Survival of all system must receive varying types and amounts of information matter and energy. The main concept of the open system are ‘input’, ‘throughout’ and ‘output’. In open system model, ‘input’ refers to matter, energy and information that enter into the system through its boundary. ‘Throughput’ refers to processing where system transforms are energy matter and information and ‘output’ refers to matter energy and information that are processed. After processing input, the system 8 returns matter, energy, information to the environment in an altered state. The present study shows lack of knowledge on anaemia before the computer assisted teaching. Input refers to the computer assisted teaching given to the adolescent girls on anaemia. Throughput is the process of transformation of knowledge instituted by the computer assisted teaching programme and output is the change in the knowledge of adolescent girls regarding anaemia which was measured through post test.
