Vocational Information for Education and Work (Project VIEW--Utah Schools).
To assess the degree of importance and use of the vocational information system, Utah "Project View," as perceived by selected students and counselors in several Utah high schools and junior high schools during the 1971-72 school year, questionnaires were distributed to a random sample of 1,765 students from 16 high schools and 6 junior high schools as well as 24 counselors from those schools. Data obtained from the survey revealed that: (1) Only about half of the students sampled are making use of occupational career information, (2) Less than 14 percent were able to recognize the VIEW materials, (3) Less than 8 percent who were able to recognize sources of the information preferred to use the VIEW materials, (4) Students feel that VIEW materials received little use as compared to other career information; however, counselors felt just the opposite, and (5) The most recognized used source of career information is the SRA "Career Exploration Kit." Based on these findings, recommendations were made that: (1) the VIEW materials not be up-dated, (2) an effort be made to evaluate other career information sources superficially investigated in this study, (3) further studies be made to determine why VIEW materials are not used, and (4) in those schools where VIEW materials receive wide use, the "master-deck" be made available for reproduction.
