A Comparison and Cost Analysis of Two Approaches to the Provision of Occupational Information.
Peterson, M. Larry
To develop effective occupational information programs in secondary schools, professional educators need reliable information on the relative costs and effectiveness of alternative methods of collecting and disseminating occupational information. The primary purposes of this study were to compare the relative effectiveness of two approaches used to present occupational information, and to ascertain and compare the costs of materials, equipment, and other resources involved in the two approaches. Video and audio cassette tapes of sequences of occupational information comprised the treatments used with two groups of ninth grade students. Cost data were gathered from both test groups for purposes of a cost analysis. Data were analyzed for differences resulting from the treatment variables. A major finding was that students receiving occupational information using video tapes indicated more occupational preference changes than did those students using audio cassette presentations. Additional findings and conclusions are presented. (Author/JS)
