DEVELOPMENT OF THE TEENAGE SELF-TEST DRINKING AND DRIVING

The purpose of the Self-Test on Drinking and Driving for Teenagers is to help adolescents understand the social and psychological forces that influence their decisions in situations where drinking and driving are combined. The Self-Test is self administered and scored to allow youngsters to interpret the meaning of their scores. Eight attitude scales were developed using data from a state-wide field test in Pennsylvania. Teenagers can compare their own profiles on the attitude scales to those obtained from the field test of about 3,000 students. The Self-Test can be used by teenager independently. It is also useful in group settings and as a basis for discussions groups in which teenagers may gain greater insights into the options open to them in choice situations and in making responsible decisions.
