Evaluative Study Design, Phase I of the Secondary Schools Project for an Introduction to the Allied Health Professions.
Fielstra, Clarence; Rosenquist, Barbara
This pilot project, intended to introduce secondary students to health occupations, includes a curriculum that is being designed for replication in secondary schools throughout the nation. Evaluation of the project is intended to provide a valid means of curriculum adjustment. This document presents the proposed research design to be used for evaluating the first year of the project. During the first year, 100 tenth grade students were exposed to a broad range of health-care occupations; they will proceed to a work-experience assignment during the second year, and will be assisted in finding employment on a half-time basis during the third year. Since the functions of students, teachers, other staff members, and the cooperating institutions have been of primary concern in the implementation stage, this evaluation seeks information from them. Data concerning the following are to be used: (1) student participation in the program, (2) learning experiences afforded participants, (3) general quality and effectiveness of the program, and (4) student progress toward achievement of stated performance objectives.
