Project TALENT: Five Years after High School and Appendix II. Final Report.
Flanagan, John C.; And Others
Project TALENT is a nationwide, long term educational research study, both cross-sectional and longitudinal in its methodology and implications. Its main goal is to understand the nature and development of the talents of the nation's adolescents. More specifically, the goals are: (1) to obtain a national inventory of human resources; (2) to develop a set of standards for educational and psychological measurements; (3) to provide a comprehensive counseling guide which will be predictive of career satisfaction through the use of aptitude and ability ratings; (4) to formulate a better understanding of how adolescents choose their life work; and (5) to identify the educational experiences which better prepare students for their life work. This portion of the study, which was begun in 1960 and designed with followups 1, 5, 10, and 20 years after high school graduation of each of the 4 classes involved, provides information derived from the 5-year followup and includes 2 appendices of information relevant to the study.
