Research and Development Project in Career Education. Final Report. (January 3, 1972-July 3, 1973). Also Final Evaluation Report for TAOSCORE Project.
Taos Municipal Schools, NM.
New Mexico's career education development, testing, and demonstration project operated in the Taos Municipal School District had as its objectives to: (1) develop and implement an elementary school program to increase career awareness, (2) improve guidance and counseling services at all grade levels with special emphasis on career orientation and exploratory experiences for junior high school students, (3) provide job preparation in occupational areas for senior high school students with special emphasis on work experiences and cooperative education opportunities, and (4) establish a placement service to insure the placement of all students in a job, a postsecondary occupational program, or a baccalaureate program. This document describes the project design, procedures, and results. An independent summative audit of the findings indicated that the program objectives were broader in scope than in depth. Teacher, counselor, and administrator effort varied from intense to superficial. Components operated as intended at some schools but not at others. The evaluation findings led to the recommendation that the program not be refunded by the State or Federal governments. Future productivity seems best provided through in-house services detailed findings and comments are presented in the final report and in the evaluation. Materials developed during the project are appended. (MF)
