Preliminary REport: Assessment of the First Year of Use of the Educational and Career Exploration System in Secondary Schools of Genesee County, Michigan.
Myers, Roger A.; And Others
This report presents the results of a first phase evaluation of an expanded project of the ECES program. In its present configuration ECES contains three sections; (1) occupations-400 occupations representing many fields and levels, (2) majors-300 post-high school, college, and other training programs, and (3) charts-which summarize and compare information about the student and his explorations. The following findings were reported: (1) in urban schools students who used ECES improved more than non-users in their awareness of potential occupational resources available to them; (2) Female students improved more than male students on the quality of their decision making and the amount of decision making information they possessed; (3) White students improved more than black students in their awareness of and use of resources for exploration. Black students, however, improved more than white students in quality of decision making and in the amount of information possessed; (4) Students from rural schools showed slightly more improvement in quality of decision making and in amount of information possessed than did suburban and urban students; and (5) the type of counselor training received by a student's counselor was not related to improvement in Vocational Maturity.
