Project World of Work. Final Report. [Final Evaluation].
Unco, Inc., Washington, DC.
The evaluation of the Project World of Work as implemented in the Contoocook Valley (Con-Val) School District, New Hampshire, uses the term "career education" as a synonym for Industriology, the science of industry, and the focal point of their program. Twelve management objectives of the program are evaluated: desk study, development of goals and objectives, budget, fiscal procedures, evaluation, time sequence chart, job descriptions, information dissemination, needs assessment, inventory of equipment and materials, phase out of activities, and staff development. Three program objectives were examined: industriology, work study/work experience, and vocational guidance. Materials related to the program and to the evaluation are included in eight appendixes. The overall intent of the evaluation was to identify the successful elements of the program as well as the unsuccessful elements. The external evaluation strategy consisted of external monitoring of project activities, multiple on-site visits requiring files audit, classroom visits, and interviews classed into four phases. It was concluded, among other observations, that the numerous changes in project staff had hindered efficient program function. (AG)
