Project INFOE (Information Needed for Occupational Entry). Final Report, Phase I.
Cameron, Walter A.
The Information Needed for Occupational Entry (INFOE) Project incorporated the use of microfilm aperture cards to help students acquire information about local employment opportunities and qualifications for various occupations. To assess the impact of Project INFOE in pilot schools within the state of Tennessee, information was obtained from students and counselors concerning the INFOE materials. This data revealed that counselors generally felt the need for more information on professional type careers. Also, a few counselors expressed a desire for INFOE cards with general information on job interviews and how to select a career. Student opinions regarding the INFOE materials were gathered by means of a pretest-posttest design. Seventy of the 164 students responding indicated that INFOE materials helped them select a vocational education course. A major recommendation of the study is that the deck of job titles should be disseminated to any school in the state that will make effective use of them. (JS)
