Career Planning Support System Program (CPSS). Final Report.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
Intended for the developmental practitioner, this report examines literature produced by the Career Planning Support System dealing with career guidance in four major areas: minority youth; women; transition from school to work; and program planning and evaluation. The area of minority youth includes a review of literature on: educational and occupational choice and the effect on achievement; research on the role of significant other influence in the education and occupational choices of black and white urban youth; research in the same area concentrating on females; and a handbook on sources of influence on career decision making. Regarding career development of women, one publication reports the findings of a study that applied two career pattern systems for women to data available on a national sample. Another discusses the representation of careers for women in career guidance materials. Also, a parent handbook is reviewed that examines career implications of sex stereotyping. An instructional unit concerning the transition from school to work is described in detail including titles and prices of instructional packages. A complete set of materials for guidance program planning and evaluation is presented along with prices for the set and single copy prices. This set contains booklets, handout material masters, a filmstrip, and a cassette tape. (CT)
