Evaluation of Four Career Education Media Used by the Indiana Career Resource Center. Research and Evaluation Report Series. Report Number 2: Career Education/Career Development Study.
Carmichael, Margaret; And Others
One hundred and sixteen elementary educators in Indiana were asked for their opinions of four primary and elementary level career education media available from the Indiana Career Resource Center. The media were: 1) Developing Understanding of Self and Others (DUSO), a program of activities including listening, experimental, inquiry, and discussion approaches to learning with a kit of materials designed to help children better understand social-emotional behavior; 2) First Things, an introduction to basic concepts of social and physical environments using filmstrips with cassettes; 3) Lee Law's Transparencies, a vocational guidance program of concepts designed to familiarize the elementary student with vocations, occupational information, the world of work, and himself; and 4) Come to Work With Us, a set of twelve books of guided tours through many business and work sites, designed as supplementary learning materials. An opinionnaire was developed to gather information on the respondent and his/her evaluation of the media. The data from the 66 o/o responding revealed that the design of the media was thought to be excellent and very helpful in improving self-concepts and related career education factors. The opinionnaire is included as one of several appendixes. (AG)
