The project's basic goals were to develop and implement a comprehensive program with a potential for statewide implementation, incorporating career education philosophy, and provide a means for other school districts to assess the worth of career education and develop techniques for implementing their own programs. Product objectives outlined the types of student outcomes which are career education objectives. Process objectives detailed the educational strategies and techniques to be used in achieving desired student outcomes. Project objectives provided a system of events leading to the accomplishment of both the product and process objectives. The program was to be implemented through the existing curriculum by all teachers, kindergarten through high school. It was felt the project made a major contribution to the statewide increase in career education awareness and interest. A 50-page external evaluation utilizing computer monitoring of the PERT schedule concluded that the process and project objectives had been met. A second, 30-page, external evaluation of product objectives, based on pre- and post-tests, was inconclusive. (AG)
