** Rationale High school and undergraduate students have pervasive misconceptions about birth control methods and often do not apply their knowledge, when correct, to decisions they must make in their lives. Unintended pregnancies accounted for almost one-half of pregnancies in the United States in 2001 (Finer & Henshaw, 2006), and teen pregnancies result in lower educational attainment and job income (Centers for Disease Control, 2011). Even the National Science Education Standards address birth control methods, in 9-12 Life Science Content Standard F (National Research Council, 1996).
