2010 Independent Research Study “Impact of Choosing the Best in Communities Committed to Abstinence Education” —
Randomized, Controlled Study Design

A randomized, controlled study, two-year evaluation of the Choosing the Best 9th grade curriculum was initiated in September 2009 and accepted for peer review and publication in early 2012. The study’s primary objective was to evaluate the efficacy of Choosing the Best in preventing sexual involvement among high school students. Key findings:

  • Students who received Choosing the Best were nearly 1.5 times more likely to delay the onset of sexual behavior than the control students at the end of 9th grade.
  • The more lessons a student received, the less likely that student was to initiate sex.
