Evaluating Career Guidance, Counseling and Placement--State Level. Identifying Areas of Concern and Determining Evidences Needed for Evaluation: Career Guidance, Counseling and Placement--State Level.
Stevenson, William W.; Sandlin, Blan E.
The overall purpose of these papers is to provide a background working paper to serve as a basis for developing a system for evaluating states' programs in Career Guidance, Counseling and Placement. An extensive review of published materials is summarized into three areas: (1) the accomplishments, limitations and trends of the current guidance effort; (2) the major concerns of guidance people; and (3) criteria for evaluating programs and identifying methods of improving vocational guidance services. Taking this information as a point of departure, the second paper recommends a procedure for securing the information, within a state, about major areas of concern and about evaluative criteria, i.e. evidences which show a program to be effective. A sampling of pertinent state level personnel as well as local administrators, student, teachers, and teacher- and counselor-educators were presented lists of identified items under each classification and asked to rank them. Results were presented. (TL)
