Incremental Improvement of Career Education in Utah. Final Report.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
This is a project report on Utah's plans to effect "incremental improvements" in career education implementation in seven school districts. Project objectives are formulated as follow: effect incremental improvements in attendance area cones, strengthen career education leadership capabilities, develop staff competence to diffuse the program, act as career education delivery model, and integrate and articulate the K-12 program into each district. The evaluation of objectives is described as one involving testing of fourth, seventh, and tenth graders. The remainder and major portion of the report contains four attachments. The first presents career education implementation categories for district, elementary, junior high, and senior high levels. Each level description also contains a chart of factors and their relationship to the implementation categories. Attachment 2 presents activities the seven districts performed during the project period. Attachment 3 evaluated the project and describes the procedures and results by district. Tables represent students' familiarity and interest in career clusters, pretest/posttest career maturity inventory results, and career development cluster assessment. The last set of tables contains results of career education implementation inventories completed by educational personnel. Summary, recommendations, and sample implementation inventory form complete the attachment. The final attachment charts the participating students and educational personnel according to race/ethnicity, exceptionality, and sex. (CSS)
