Career Development for Dropout LD and ED Adolescent Boys: Two Evaluation Reports on Activities between April 1, 1980-September 30, 1980 and October 1, 1980-March 31, 1981.
Pooley, Richard C.
Two reports chronicle accomplishments of the James Barry-Robinson Institute, a project designed to serve learning disabled (LD) and emotionally disturbed (ED) adolescent male dropouts by helping to increase their employability through special education, career guidance, and social skills training. Both reports are formative evaluations. In the first report, results of the Piers-Harris Self Concept Scale, the Career Maturity Inventory Attitude Scale, Tests for Everyday Living, and the Client Satisfaction Questionnaire, along with staff responses are reported, and successful and unsuccessful project factors are noted. The second report examines career education programs (food service, woodworking, volunteering). Suggestions are made for increasing staff training, emphasizing program development, and establishing formal evaluation standards. (CL)
