Planning, Developing, and Field Testing Career Guidance Programs: A Manual and Report. Final Report.
Jones, G. Brian; And Others
Many programs designed to improve youth career planning and development processes face several limitations. To improve such methods such rationale are necessary: (1) make explicit the assumptions underlying these programs; (2) describe the planning methods and criteria for deriving youth goals and performances objectives; (3) specify desired youth outcomes in terms of measureable criterion behaviors related to assessed needs; (4) make sure instructional and counseling procedures are feasible; (5) demand that the youth activities involved in the selected procedures are scheduled, and the staff services and material resources required to conduct these activities be collected and implemented; (6) employ summative and formative evaluation designs to study both the expected and unexpected outcomes of these programs; and (7) require continuous revision of program activities, based on evaluation feedback, until such programs were fully effective for their intended audiences.
