Research concluded

Re: Food Skills Rating Checklist has now been tested by YOU! 

This research has now been collected and is now in the process of being analysed as part of my submission of a PhD thesis titled 'Food Skills in Secondary Schools'.

For those of you who are new to this blog, over 40 home economics teachers, nutritionists, community health workers and academics both here in Australia and overseas took part in the testing of the Food Skills Rating Checklist.

Thank you to all those respondents who contributed to the research project.
As followers of this blog know, I am currently undertaking a PhD thesis evaluating food skills in Victorian secondary schools at the School of Health Sciences, University of Wollongong.

As part of my research project in Study 3, I developed a Food Skills Rating Checklist that would be used by teachers to assess their students' food skills.
The aim of the project was to identify the Checklist’s ease of use and value to teachers in the classroom.  See the results of the findings in the latest blog.
