  1. Development of a culturally, theoretically and developmentally based survey instrument for assessing risk behaviors among african-american early adolescents living in urban low-income meighborhoods.

    Article - En anglais

    The creation of developmentally and culturally appropriate data-gathering instruments is necessary as health researchers and interventionists expand their investigations to community-based minority adolescent populations.

    The creation of such instruments is a complex process, requiring the integration of multiple data-gathering and analytic approaches.

    Recent efforts have delineated several issues to be considered in survey design for minority populations :

    • community collaboration ;

    • problem conceptualization ;

    • application of the presumed model of behavioral change ;

    • and dialect and format of delivery.

    This paper describes the process of creating a culturally and developmentally appropriate, theoretically grounded instrument for use in monitoring the impact of an AIDS educational intervention on the behavior and health outcomes of urban African-American pre-adolescents and early adolescents.

    Three phases of research were involved :

    Preliminary (and ongoing) ethnographic research including extensive participant observation, as well as, focus group and individual interviews with 65 youths ; construction and testing of the preliminary instrument involving two waves of pilot testing (N1=57 ; N2=45) ; and, finalization of the instrument including reliability testing and assessment of tool constructs and selection of the mode of delivery (involving 2 additional waves of pilot testing (N3=91 ; N4=351).
