Report to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction of the Results from a Student Opinionnaire Concerning Career Education in the Public Schools of Eau Clair, Wisconsin in December 1972 and May 1973.
Meyer, Robert S.
The purpose of the study was to determine the degree of success being attained by teachers who have had the benefit of participating in a three-week career education summer workshop in (1) teaching the basic career development concepts listed with the scope and sequence model in Wisconsin's "K-12 Guide for Integrating Career Development Into Local Curriculum," and (2) accomplishing the goals of each of the components of career education. The project personnel developed an evaluation instrument which consisted of 58 statements to be answered strongly agree, agree, disagree, or strongly disagree. Data were gathered in December 1972 and May 1973 for grades 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, and 12. Responses are reported by grade and sex. Approximately three-fourths of all student responses to all items from all grades were positive in May; however, grade group responses reveal considerable divergence. Effectiveness of component categories is shown. Conclusions and recommendations point the way to future career education activities. (MS)
