|Description||If you agree to take part in this study, you will be randomly assigned (as in a roll of dice) to 1 of 3 study groups. Neither you nor the study staff will be able to choose which group you will be in: - If you are in Group 1, you will read a booklet about colorectal cancer screening tests. While reading the booklet, you will also listen to an audio CD that will narrate the booklet. - If you are in Group 2, you will watch a video with non-moving images about colorectal cancer screening tests on an iPad. - If you are in Group 3, you will watch a video with animated images about colorectal cancer screening tests on an iPad. You will complete questionnaires before and after viewing the program that will contain questions about: - Your age and what language you speak - Your math and reading comprehension - Your knowledge of colorectal cancer and colorectal cancer screening - Your thoughts about colorectal cancer screening - Your opinions about this study, and - How well you understand the booklet/video you view as part of this study It will take about 1 hour to complete all the questionnaires. In total, the study will take about 1 ½ to 2 hours to complete. After you have completed the questionnaires, your participation in the study will be over. This is an investigational study.
