VOCATIONAL-EDUCATIONAL INFORMATION WORKSHOP FOR RURAL GUIDANCE WORKERS (WESTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY, AUGUST 15-26, 1966).
SEVERINSEN, K. NORMAN
A TWO-WEEK WORKSHOP IN EDUCATIONAL-VOCATIONAL INFORMATION FOR TWENTY RURAL GUIDANCE WORKERS WAS CONDUCTED IN AUGUST, 1966. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROJECT WERE TO UP-DATE COUNSELORS CONCERNING OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION AND TO DEVELOP NEW APPROACHES FOR DISSEMINATING VOCATIONAL INFORMATION. DURING THE COURSE OF THE WORKSHOP, THE CAREER AND VOCATIONAL KNOWLEDGE TEST (CVKT) AND A CAREER QUESTIONNAIRE WERE DEVELOPED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DETERMINING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TWENTY PARTICIPANTS WITHIN THEIR RESPECTIVE SCHOOLS. TWO RURAL SCHOOLS WHOSE COUNSELORS DID NOT ATTEND THE WORKSHOP WERE SELECTED AND THE STUDENTS OF THESE SCHOOLS WERE UTILIZED AS A CONTROL GROUP. INCREASED EFFORTS WERE MADE TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL VOCATIONAL INFORMATION FOR THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP, WHOSE COUNSELORS ATTENDED THE WORKSHOP. BOTH THE CONTROL AND EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS WERE TESTED IN THE SAME MANNER AND AT THE SAME TIME OF YEAR. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP SHOWED SIGNIFICANT GAINS ON THE CVKT OVER THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN THE CONTROL SCHOOLS, WHEREAS FEW DIFFERENCES WERE NOTED FROM ADMINISTRATION OF THE CAREER QUESTIONNAIRE. IN SUBJECTIVE EVALUATIONS MADE BY THE TWENTY COUNSELORS, THERE WAS GENERAL AGREEMENT THAT THIS APPROACH TO IN-SERVICE EDUCATION WAS VALUABLE. (ES)
