Banta, Trudy W.; Boser, Judith A.
This report presents an evaluation of the career education leadership activities conducted in Tennessee in 1979-80, the first year of operation for Tennessee's five-year State Plan for Career Education. Section 1 addresses the relationship between the activities in the State Plan and a state-wide needs assessment. Sections 2-7 focus on assessment of the six elements of the State Plan: (1) administration/coordination activities of state coordinator, (2) advisory council, (3) technical assistance workshops, (4) workshop to reduce bias and stereotyping, (5) counselor workshops, and (6) summer career education festival. Final reports from twenty local projects funded under provisions of the Career Education Incentive Act (P.L. 95-207) are summarized in Section 8. Findings are organized under these headings: prior needs assessment data, project organization and support, needs assessment conducted 1979-80, staff development, other project activities, project evaluations, funding and expenditures, recommendations for the state-wide leadership effort, and achievement of state objectives. Section 9 summarizes major findings and recommendations. Suggestions are offered in the areas of objectives, involvement of teacher preparatory institutions, advisory council functioning, evaluation, project selection, and proposal guidelines. (Twenty-three tables and listings of responses display results of the various evaluations.) (YLB)
