Report of Findings of a Primary and a Secondary Analysis of the Effects of Career Education on Career Decision-Making Processes of a Sample of Upward Bound Students.
Blecharczyk, Stephanie; Fortune, Jimmie
Upward Bound is a federally funded program designed to motivate and prepare selected high school students for a successful college education. Of the 54 students participating in the Keene State College Upward Bound Summer program, 35 received instruction in career planning and decision making (CDM). The remaining 19 students formed the comparison group. All students completed a pretest-posttest survey. The one-way analysis of covariance used in the primary analysis produced unclear results. The secondary analysis utilized an effect-coded multiple regression partitioning model. Results from this analysis showed that both sex and age main effects were not significant, but both the treatment and the student's prior knowledge had significant main effects and a significant interaction.
