Third Year Evaluation of the Maryland Career Development Project. Vol. 2. Final Evaluation Report.
Orr, David B.; Vincent, Kathleen S.
The report covers evaluation activities of Audo-Read Systems during the final year of the Maryland Career Development Project, a project which provided several programs or activities of an exemplary nature designed to facilitate career development. Its objectives were to help students: (1) develop a positive self-concept and greater self-understanding; (2) learn about and understand the range of educational and career opportunities; (3) develop and use the decision-making process more effectively; (4) make smoother transitions at key points in their career lives. The report focuses on three components of the project (elementary, junior high, and senior high school) and is organized by sections in each of which a project goal, method planned for achieving it, and expected results are presented. The evaluation procedure, data, results and discussion pertaining to that goal are then presented. Elementary teachers and program planners may find the 74 pages of appendixes of special value, for they include program descriptions, transcripts of elementary school observations, elementary teacher progress reports, and instruments used in the evaluation at primary and intermediate levels. (Instruments used to survey workshop participants are included in the text.) (Author/AJ)
