There were 35 students in the experimental group and 35 students in the control group. After the completion of collecting data, Analysis of Covariance was employed to analyze it. The results of posttest found that students in the experimental group who had received the training had higher positive attitude in the media consumption after obtaining the treatment (p<.05). Then, the pretest score was chosen as covariance. The result found that the score of positive attitude towards the appropriate media consumption of the experimental group was higher than the control group (p<.01).
