Pilot "B" Curriculum Evaluation and Interpretive Analysis. Phase II Final Report.
Evaluation during Pilot B of Phase II of the Social Service Aide Project, a program of exemplary education for the career development of paraprofessionals in social and/or human services, was conducted on 11 courses offered in social service and child care at Kennedy-King College, Chicago. Questionnaires, which were derived from a task analysis inventory and sent to over 500 students, were returned by 367 and provided information on the course taken and the time, nature, and area of employment. Most of the students worked full time, and the largest employment areas were within schools, primarily paraprofessional positions, and factory jobs. These were followed by business, social service, and medical positions. In addition large numbers of students responded that they had performed the tasks presented, but many students felt that the courses did not help them perform the activities. The findings revealed that the curriculum as offered did not fully achieve the core curriculum goal and design. Results further show the need for course modification and precourse orientation of the instructors. Phase I is available as ED 035 062 (RIE, May 1970), and related documents are available as VT 012 530-012 533 in this issue. (SB)
