Abstract: Young people's ideas about drugs and drug use were elicited in two separate studies, one at Key Stage Two and the other at key Stages Three and Four. The first study was used to assess primary children's drug education needs; this assessment was carried out as part of a consultancy in which three primary schools were helped to formulate drug education policies. The second study was part of an evaluation of Tacade's Skills for Life (1994), a secondary school PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) pack. This evaluation was conducted with special reference to drug education. This paper reviews the methodologies of elicitation used in the two studies; the following paper discusses their application and limitations.
