USE AND EVALUATION OF OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION MATERIALS.
PERRONE, PHILIP A.
OF 18,000 SECONDARY SCHOOLS CONTACTED, 30 PERCENT RESPONDED TO A QUESTIONNAIRE ON OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION MATERIALS. OCCUPATIONAL LITERATURE WAS OBTAINED BY COUNSELORS 80 PERCENT OF THE TIME. ON THE AVERAGE, $178.00 IS AVAILABLE YEARLY FOR THIS PURCHASE. THE FACILITIES AVAILABLE FOR DISPLAYING MATERIALS ARE DESCRIBED. THE CIRCUMSTANCES UNDER WHICH STUDENTS USE OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION AND THE KINDS OF STUDENTS WHO USE THESE MATERIALS ARE DISCUSSED. THE INFORMATION SOURCES USED MOST FREQUENTLY ARE RATED AND EXPLAINED. COUNSELORS WERE ASKED TO EVALUATE TWO TYPES OF OCCUPATIONAL LITERATURE (DESCRIPTION AND OUTLOOK) FOR (1) TERMINAL STUDENTS, (2) STUDENTS PLANNING POST HIGH SCHOOL, VOCATIONAL, OR TECHNICAL TRAINING, AND (3) STUDENTS PLANNING TO ENTER JUNIOR COLLEGE OR COLLEGE. A SUMMARY OF THE INFORMATION IS PRESENTED IN PERCENTAGES. NO CONCLUSIONS ARE DRAWN BECAUSE OF THE LOW PERCENTAGE OF RETURNS. ANOTHER SURVEY OF SCHOOLS NOT PREVIOUSLY CONTACTED IS UNDERWAY. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION CONVENTION, DALLAS, TEXAS, MARCH, 1967. (VL)
