Good day

Please advise, am currently doing my thesis which will focus on analysing the level of HIV prevention awareness among school-going children. The outcome variable "level of awareness" is computed by scoring 1 for each 'correct' answer and a score of 0 for the 'incorrect' answer then summing up the scores.Now the hick-up am facing is that through literature I can't find a standard cut off on the level of awareness (or knowledge) so I focused on DHS data since there are questions on Comprehensive Knowledge of HIV prevention and I still can't figure it out (cut-off)out from the manuals. Can you kindly advise on how the level of Comprehensive knowledge was calculated and the cut off used to determine that level

Kind Regards
