This packet of materials provides a copy of the Career and Occupational Development exercises and complete documentation about administration and scoring procedures as released by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). NAEP, an information-gathering project, used these exercises to survey the educational attainments of nine-year-olds, thirteen-year-olds, seventeen-year-olds, and adults (ages 26-35) in the learning area of career and occupational development. Introductory materials include an outline of NAEP data collection procedures and tables overviewing COD released exercises in terms of "assessment coverage." Table 4 gives a complete listing of the sixty-one exercises. Exercises are grouped according to five career and occupational development objectives and their nineteen subobjectives: (1) Prepare for making career decisions, (2) Improve career and occupational capabilities, (3) Possess skills that are generally useful in the world of work, (4) Practice effective work habits, and (5) Have positive attitudes toward work. A key clarifies the exercise identification systems; exercise, scoring, and administration descriptors; and administration times. Each exercise is reproduced exactly as it was administered and is followed by a scoring guide.
