Second Year Assessment of Career Education Project.
Nerden, Joseph T.; And Others
An evaluation team obtained data during a three-day on-site visit to the Bridgeport (Conn.) Career Education project regarding personnel, school-community activities and support, learning activities and projects, curriculum and materials, teacher attitudes, and other factors. Evaluative data were obtained from suggested instruments, from subjective information obtainable from interviews, and from observable learning activities; little emphasis was placed on a statistical analysis of the data. Findings include that: (1) the proposal philosophy and objectives appeared to be fully met; (2) project administration appeared excellent; (3) wise use was made of funds; (4) supervision and coordination were at a high level of service; (5) excellent results were achieved by the project, reaching all levels of education in the city; (6) observable student outcomes (enthusiasm, basic learnings, involvement in planning and career information) were of high order; (7) teachers found and capitalized upon devices and projects in career education; (8) community support for career education was evident; (9) the several discrete segments of career education (career awareness, exploration, hands-on experiences, vocational preparation, occupational information and job placement) were provided appropriately to objectives and resources. Recommendations and suggestions were made. (SC)
