Abstract

Objective. To evaluate knowledge and attitudinal outcomes of an educational asthma program for third-grade children with and without asthma. Methodology. "The Lion Who Couldn't Roar" was presented to third-grade classes in three Chicago area Counties. Participant asthma knowledge and attitudes were assessed via a print-based pretest-posttest design. Teacher satisfaction was also assessed. Data were analyzed using Rasch analysis before paired t tests were performed. Results. Pre- and post-assessments were completed by 943 participants. A statistically significant increase in mean logit scores was identified on both knowledge and attitude evaluations (p < 0.001, p < 0.001). Conclusions. The results provide evidence of program impact.
