Penetrating School Strata through Career Education. Program Evaluation.
Lindia, Albert; And Others
This is the final report and evaluation of a program designed to disseminate career education curricular materials to career education agencies in Connecticut and nationwide. In three sections, the report evaluates the dissemination process. Section 1 focuses on the number of curricular packets disseminated and the localities reached after initial mailing. This portion contains maps, statistics, charts, and outlines which relate to the initial mailing, the respondents, and the Connecticut Superintendents. The final total distribution is reported as 525; total number of locations reached is fifty-seven. The conclusion is that the distribution phase was successful in that broad national coverage was achieved. Section 2 examines the origin and number of curriculum materials received from other sources. The evaluation of this phase is that, since only thirteen materials were received, the project did not meet expectations of a two-way sharing of materials. The final section gives results of a survey used to ascertain general use of circulated materials. With the report's caution that 51% of the forms were returned, seven findings are presented, the first of which is that 63.7% of respondents indicated the curricular materials were used for reference/resource purposes in the career education library. A final project performance report and a performance report abstract are attached. (CSS)
