Priorities for the Further Development of Career Education.
Buettner, David LeRoy
This study utilized the Delphi Technique to collect and synthesize the perceptions and experiential insight of persons involved in the early career education effort. Its specific objectives were to identify possible future efforts in career education and assign priorities to them according to their significance and to identify the level of consensus that existed among the respondents who produced the priority list. Three successive survey instruments distributed to career education researchers, developers, and implementers were used to gather data. The findings obtained were based upon response rates of 79.5 percent, 87.5 percent, and 85 percent respectively from the three survey instruments. Categories of items receiving high priority ratings were: (1) staff development, (2) items related to secondary preparation and the transition from school to work, and (3) efforts to promote public understanding. Accountability, evaluation efforts, and curriculum development for early, middle grades, and adult education were rated as lower, and basic research and theory explication efforts, as lowest in priority. Results of the effects of various demographic variables on the response patterns of respondents are included as are the conclusions. (Author/SN)
