State Fair Community College Experience Based Career Education, 1977-1978. Third Party Evaluation Report.
Neely, Margery A.
This report describes the third party evaluation of the State Fair Community College Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) program. Experience based career education students and control students were compared using both locally developed instruments and standardized measures. Standardized measures inlcude the Career Development Inventory, Career Maturity Inventory, Student Attitude Survey, and Tests of Academic Progress. Among the findings of the evaluation was that the eleven students who completed the program out of the twelve who began completed at least one academic credit through EBCE projects. Results of the Career Development Inventory indicate that the distribution of occupational group preferences show more change for EBCE students while ratings of strength of preference were significantly higher for EBCE than for control students. Resource persons participating in the program indicated strong support for the project saying they would recommend it to others. (Pretest and posttest data are appended.) (LRA)
