Abstract

The authors examined the relationship between students' perceptions of a problem behavior prevention program, All Stars, and changes in the program variables. Three factors - Program Enjoyment, Student Engagement, and Teacher Relationship - were used to predict changes in the four variables targeted by the All Stars program. Student Engagement was related to greater changes in student idealism, commitment, and bonding. Program Enjoyment was related to positive changes in student idealism and normative beliefs. Teacher Relationship had little impact on the program variables. Students who were taught All Stars by regular classroom teachers reported greater Program Enjoyment and Student Engagement than students taught by health education specialists.
