Abstract
The primary goal of this project was to develop, test and distribute high quality agricultural tractor and machinery safety curriculum, via interactive CD-ROM, interactive World Wide Web (WWW) programming and interactive paper manual, that would meet part of the requirements for the federally prescribed tractor certification program. The three educational pieces developed (interactive CD-ROM program, Web- based program and paper manual) were evaluated in a comparative study to determine the educational effectiveness of each to create a positive gain in knowledge. Results showed that high school aged youth using the interactive CD-ROM based program exhibited an average knowledge gain of 49.8%. Youth using the web-based program gained an average of 24.2% and youth receiving instruction with the paper manual and instructor showed an average knowledge gain of 26.0%. Knowledge was measured using a pre-test/post test strategy.
