Information Collection Request Title: Federal Evaluation of Making Proud Choices! (MPC!)

OMB No.: 0990-0452

Abstract: The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting approval by OMB on a revised data collection. The Federal Evaluation of Making Proud Choices! (MPC!) will provide information about program design, implementation, and impacts through a rigorous assessment of a highly popular teen pregnancy prevention curriculum—MPC. This revision to this information collection request includes the follow-up survey instrument, administered approximately 9 and 15 months post baseline, and related to the impact study. The evaluation will be conducted in 39 schools nationwide. The data collected from this instrument will provide a detailed understanding of program impacts. Clearance is requested for three years.

Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The follow-up survey data will be used to determine program effectiveness by comparing sexual behavior outcomes, such as postponing sexual activity, and reducing or preventing sexual risk behaviors and STDs and intermediate outcomes, such as improving exposure, knowledge and attitudes between treatment (program) and control youth.

The findings from these analyses of program impacts will be of interest to the general public, to policymakers, and to schools and other organizations interested in supporting teen pregnancy prevention.

Likely Respondents: The follow-up surveys will be administered to study participants, who will primarily be in 10th-12th grade at the time of the follow-up surveys.

The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below.
