Career Education Readiness Test. Final Report.
Gray, H. Dean; And Others
A continuing project titled "Measuring Career Readiness in Elementary Education" had as its fourth-year goal constructing learning activities to coordinate with six subtest areas of the Career Education Readiness Test (CERT). The secondary goal was to continue the refinement of the CERT through the analysis of data gathered during the current year and in previous years. Using data gathered from the Joliet (Illinois) Pilot Study, the following statistical procedures were conducted: a correlational analysis, an item analysis, and a reliability analysis. The results were encouraging and indicate that CERT has the potential to become a valuable tool for elementary teachers who are involved, or interested, in career education. (Specific results of the statistical procedures are included in this final report, along with descriptions of studies conducted in Breese, Illinois, and East Saint Louis, Illinois, and a workshop conducted in Belleville, Illinois. Also included is a section summarizing initial contacts with commercial publishers. The report concludes with a discussion of limitations and recommendations.) (BM)
