Components of career-vocational program development are identified, and steps in the developmental flow for assessment, evaluation, and curriculum design are listed. A model for career development is also presented, and goals and curricular activities are identified for junior and senior high grades. In addition, personal-social, occupational, and daily living factors that should be included in an assessment design and evaluation are specified, and four assessment techniques frequently used in career-vocational assessment are described. Information is presented on developing assessment instruments and work samples, interview strategies, and selecting and adapting assessment instruments and procedures. The information on 39 assessment instruments includes the following: authors, vendor, type, items, administration, content, scoring, purpose, and special needs considerations. Appended materials include definitions of approximately 115 career-vocational terms and a list of nine publications. (SEW)
