Abstract

EFFECT OF A PLANNED TEACHING ON KNOWLEDGE ATTITUDE AND PRACTICE ON COTTAGE FARMING AMONG RURAL WOMEN IN A SELECTED VILLAGE AT KOLLAM DISTRICT

Prof. Sr. Alphonsa Parambil*

ABSTRACT

A pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test study was done to assess an effect of a planned teaching on knowledge attitude and practice on cottage farming among rural women in a selected village at Kollam district. The objectives of the study were, assess the knowledge, attitude and practice of rural women (18-60) regarding cottage farming before and after the planned teaching, evaluate the effect of planned teaching on knowledge, attitude and practice among rural women regarding cottage farming by comparing the pre and post test, and find out the association between the knowledge, attitude and practice scores with selected demographic variables in pre test. The conceptual framework for the study was based on the concept of the Health Promotion Model of Nola J Pender (1982, revised, 1996 ). Non probability convenient sampling technique was used to select 30 rural women for the study. The tools used for data collection were, demographic data, knowledge questionnaire, Attitude in Likert scale and Observational Checklist. The results of the study showed that mean post-test knowledge score is 24.9,which is higher than mean pre-test knowledge score11.2,the computed„ t‟ value was 13.62.. The mean post-test attitude 50.0 is higher than mean pre-test score 38.2, the computed‛ t‟ value was 8.96. The mean post-test practice score 10.0 is higher than mean pre-test score 4.1, the computed „t‟ value is 25.66 ,the p value is 0.000,for KAP which is less than 0.05 and which shows that there was significant difference between the pre and post-test mean knowledge, attitude and practice scores. The p value, 0.000 was less than 0.05.Thus the null hypothesis was rejected and research hypothesis was accepted. So there was significant difference between the knowledge, attitude and practice score of rural women on cottage after the planned teaching.

Keywords: Cottage farming, KAP=Knowledge, attitude and practice and Rural women.
