Brief Summary:
This study utilizes implementation science principles to culturally adapt a pre-existing web-based application (WebApp) for use with college students. The ADAPT-ITT process will be utilized to adapt the WebApp to a diverse (race, ethnicity, gender/sexual identity) college population with a focus on life skills and holistic self-care as reinforcement to currently available primary prevention programming available to incoming students. The study hypothesis is that the adapted WebApp will be usable, acceptable, and students will be willing to use it as a reinforcement to current university primary prevention programming. The study team will also monitor retention of participants over the academic year. This is a repeat pilot test to evaluate changes implemented to the WebApp after the initial pilot during the 2017-2018 academic year.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Usability of the MKit WebApp as Assessed by the 10-item System Usability Scale [ Time Frame: 1-month ]
    Usability of the MKit WebApp will be measured using the 10-item System Usability Scale. Participants in the experimental group will complete the System Usability Scale (Brook, 1996), which is a 10 item questionnaire with responses that are rated from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 5 (Strongly Agree) regarding use of the MKit WebApp. To get a final score: 1) First, one is subtracted from the score of the odd items; 2) Second, the responses are subtracted from 5 for the even-numbered items; 3) Then the responses are summed and multiplied by 2.5 to get a range of 0-100. A score above 68 is considered above average for perceived usability.

  2. Usability of the MKit WebApp as Assessed by the 10-item System Usability Scale [ Time Frame: 4-Months ]
    Usability of the MKit WebApp will be measured using the 10-item System Usability Scale. Participants in the experimental group will complete the System Usability Scale (Brook, 1996), which is a 10 item questionnaire with responses that are rated from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 5 (Strongly Agree) regarding use of the MKit WebApp. To get a final score: 1) First, one is subtracted from the score of the odd items; 2) Second, the responses are subtracted from 5 for the even-numbered items; 3) Then the responses are summed and multiplied by 2.5 to get a range of 0-100. A score above 68 is considered above average for perceived usability.

  3. Acceptability of the MKit WebApp as Assessed by the 5-item System Acceptability Scale [ Time Frame: 1-Month ]
    The 5-item System Acceptability Scale (investigator created) will be used to evaluate the acceptability of the WebApp in the intervention group only. An investigator-created acceptability scale with 5-items will be used to measure acceptability. Four items are scored from 1 (Strongly Agree/Very Likely) to 5 (Strongly Disagree/Very Unlikely) and will be reverse coded. One item assesses the frequency of use of the WebApp from 1 (Never) to 5 (Multiple times a week). All five items will be summed for a total score. Scores range from 5-25, with higher scores indicating greater acceptability.

  4. Acceptability of the MKit WebApp as Assessed by the 5-item System Acceptability Scale [ Time Frame: 4-Months ]
    The 5-item System Acceptability Scale (investigator created) will be used to evaluate the acceptability of the WebApp in the intervention group only. An investigator-created acceptability scale with 5-items will be used to measure acceptability. Four items are scored from 1 (Strongly Agree/Very Likely) to 5 (Strongly Disagree/Very Unlikely) and will be reverse coded. One item assesses the frequency of use of the WebApp from 1 (Never) to 5 (Multiple times a week). All five items will be summed for a total score. Scores range from 5-25, with higher scores indicating greater acceptability.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 1-Month Retention [ Time Frame: 1-Month ]
    The retention rate will be calculated based on how many participants in the intervention group have completed the follow-up surveys. A total retention rate (those retained/those enrolled) will be computed based on interaction with the WebApp.

  2. 4-Month Retention [ Time Frame: 4-Month ]
    The retention rate will be calculated based on how many participants in the intervention group have completed the follow-up surveys. A total retention rate (those retained/those enrolled) will be computed based on interaction with the WebApp.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. 1-Month Sexual Victimization as Assessed by the 10-item Sexual Experiences Survey [ Time Frame: 1-Month ]
    The 10-item Sexual Experiences Survey will be used to measure participants' experiences of sexual violence victimization. The revised Sexual Experiences Survey - Short Form Victimization (Koss et al., 2007) includes 10 items that are used to assess the frequency of seven victimization behaviors and then uses three questions to explore the sex of the perpetrator and if the participant believes they were raped. We will be items 1-7 to assess the number of times an individual has experienced victimization over the last 1 month from 0 to 3+ times. The results will be scored as a percentage of participants who have experienced each individual behavior and the percentage who report that they have experienced a rape.

The revised Sexual Experiences Survey - Short Form Perpetration (Koss et al., 2007) includes seven items that are used to assess the frequency of perpetration of sexual violence behaviors and three questions that explore the sex of the victims and if the individual believes they have perpetrated a rape. We will be using these to assess the number of times an individual has perpetrated sexual violence over the last 1 month from 0 to 3+ times. The results will be scored as a percentage of participants who have perpetrated each individual behavior and the percentage who believe they have perpetrated a rape.

  4. 4-Month Sexual Violence Perpetration as Assessed by the 10-item Sexual Experience Survey [ Time Frame: 4-Months ]
    The 10-item Sexual Experiences Survey will be used to measure participants' experiences of sexual violence perpetration. The revised Sexual Experiences Survey - Short Form Perpetration (Koss et al., 2007) includes seven items that are used to assess the frequency of perpetration of sexual violence behaviors and three questions that explore the sex of the victims and if the individual believes they have perpetrated a rape. We will be using these to assess the number of times an individual has perpetrated sexual violence over the last 4 months from 0 to 3+ times.
