This 4-volume research guide to New Careers programs, which was derived from personal interviews with approximately 100 respondents in individual and group sessions, is intended to serve a variety of uses, such as: (1) to encourage program planners and operators to utilize research as a means of contributing to problem solving, and (2) to stimulate and assist those researching various aspects of New Careers programs. The contents, which reflect many of the major suggestions and needs expressed by those who are involved in some aspect of New Careers programs, are organized in the following volumes: (1) Assessing the Impact of the New Careers Program, which proposes research studies that deal with considerations necessary for launching a New Careers program, (2) The Design and Operation of New Careers Programs, which proposes research studies that deal with ongoing operational problems of New Careers programs, (3) Assessing the Impact of the New Careers Program, which proposes research studies to assess the success of the total program rather than the effectiveness of individual components, and (4) Implications of the New Careers Program for the Field of Education, which cites areas where research efforts may be applied to planning and operation activities of New Careers educational projects to suit the needs of those served.
