QUESTION TO BE ANSWERED What is the knowledge base of responsible sexual behavior among Rowan Students?
THE ANSWER After analyzing the data it appears that Rowan Students have had prior education about responsible sexual behavior and are knowledgeable about it Even though Rowan students are educated, they do not use what they know
INTERPRETATION We feel that our results mean that the students of Rowan tend to shy away from their knowledge of responsible sexual behavior and don’t make the best decisions
SURPRISING STATISTICS! About 50% of the students surveyed were only confronted by their parents! Around 33% of participants were aware of their partners sexual history! 77% of males don’t use a condom every time and 58% of females don’t make their partner wear a condom Both females and males are 86% sexually active
OTHER STUDIES We were unable to find other studies specifically related to our research question Most articles on sexual behavior were on how it is taught or how to prevent risky sexual behavior
WHAT CAN ROWAN DO? It is difficult to directly affect the actions of college students Offer classes that refresh student’s memories on certain information
WOULD IT MATTER? Going by the tendencies of students now, if Rowan offered classes it most likely would have little impact
WHAT CAN WE DO? Start using what we know and stop ignoring it!
FUTURE RESEARCH Broaden the population that is surveyed by selecting more schools in more areas Ask more questions about a person’s knowledge and how they behave
