YOLO is Evidence Based

During the 18 years we created our communication tools by constantly improving and testing. Also YOLO.game has been tested. This is done by the University of Amsterdam at several high schools by boys & girls in the age from 13-17 years old. The research was focused on two main questions while playing the YOLO.game

*Is the message of the different cards understood and discussed?

*How do students respond to the chosen atmosphere of the images?

*Is the message of the different cards understood and discussed?

The scores have been analyzed by a professor of the University and test analysis shows that most of the cards tested in between 3-4 on a scale of 1 to 4. So this is a high score. Only with 4 of the cards the high school students had some difficulty with the recognition of the message.

*How do students respond to the chosen atmosphere of the images

Also in the analyze of the test on this question the scores are in between 2.5-3 on a scale of 1 to 4.

On the extra questions as:

*are you happy with the messages and do you think the images are well chosen in atmosphere, respectful and humorous ?

76 % of the students said Yes.

*did you like to hear the thoughts and stories of the students from your group and did you dare to participate in the conversation.

The response was positive

66% of the high school students prefer to have the information about the topics of SRSR at school and 26 % of the students also would like to talk about these issues and life skills with their parents.

So 92% of the teenagers would like to be informed about and to learn to talk more openly about sexual health and sexual rights and all the topics in between.

Also the teachers involved in this research were surprised by the outcome when the youngsters played the game and when they heard the dialogues amongst the pubers. The students enjoyed the discussions and talked and shared a lot about different subjects, their own limits & wishes etc.

The YOLO.game works – all participants students & teachers confirmed

So we can be happy with the results and this is an extra reason to continue to share the YOLO.game
