An Evaluation of the Effects of a Planned Career Education Program for Grades 7, 8, 9, and 10 in a Rural Area.
Hammond, Robert R.; And Others
The purpose of a planned career education program was to provide rural students in grades seven through ten a variety of experiences and knowledges which would form a basis for future educational and occupational choices. The program explores occupational models in the home, family, and local community; occupational choices available in the State and region; attitudes, interests, and ability levels of the student; and occupations that require further education and training. Students at the grade levels mentioned in Maine School Administrative District #37 comprised the study's sample population. They were asked to complete the Occupational Knowledge Test and a Personal Data Sheet. Results were tabulated for the questions: (1) Is the student able to identify several occupations and their importance to his career plans? (2) Is he able to define several occupations and describe the nature of the work involved? (3) Does he know the qualifications for several occupations and can he list the training needed for entrance? (4) Is the student able to relate occupational knowledge to the study of an occupation in an objective style? (5) Do sex differences influence student occupational knowledge? and (6) Is intelligence a factor in limiting or increasing occupational knowledge? (AG)
