The WHO has developed the Global School-based Student Health Survey (GSHS) in WHO member countries to obtain information on health risk and protective factors(WHO GSHS). This survey has a common methodology aimed at schools and has a self-administered questionnaire, which includes core questionnaire modules, core expanded questions and country-specific questions. This questionnaire has been developed for Jordan also. This one is being planned to use as the instrument to evaluate whether the health promotion strategies in Jordan have an impact on the health risk behaviours and protective factors of high school students in the city.
This paper aims to critically evaluate the validity of the instrument used to measure the impact of health promotion strategies in Jordan. It critically examines the strengths, weaknesses and relevance of the questionnaire developed by WHO as an instrument to a high school-based health promotion program in Jordan.
The sample of students from 8th to 10th grades for the survey has been selected through two stages cluster sampling with 25 schools being selected with probability proportional to school enrolment size in the first stage and 70classrooms randomly selected from each classroom in the second stage. Thus, altogether a sample of 2243 students has been selected for the survey. 87 multiple-choice questions have been prepared and the correct choices need to be marked by circles on a computer scannable answer sheet.&nbsp. &nbsp.
