Search for Effectiveness of the Occupational Orientation Programs in the State of Texas. Final Report.
Huffstutler, D. Vaughn; And Others
The aim of the study was to evaluate the Occupational Orientation programs funded by the Texas Department of Occupational Education. Interviews with 69 staff members rated the adequacy of various program features. Highest ratings were assigned to such items as freedom to utilize materials, equal opportunities, field trips, developing four year plans, and understanding the principle of the program. There were 186 recommendations for program improvements and changes submitted by classroom teachers, occupational orientation teachers, counselors, and administrators. In addition, students participating in the programs in two school systems were evaluated by pretest and posttest. Indications are that the instructional programming was very effective in these school systems. There are 66 tabular presentations containing the major volume of data and information gathered. Appendixes include the interview schedule and the self-evaluation and program analysis form with results. (MS)
