Evaluating a Career Education Program With IBE.
Holden, H. Dale
Major career education concepts were infused into the total curriculum in District II of Richland County in Columbia, South Carolina. Six major areas of emphasis were identified reflecting district thinking and national trends: self awareness; decision-making; career awareness; attitudes and appreciations; economic awareness; and educational awareness. Information Based Evaluation Exchange (IBEX) was chosen to evaluate this effort. Workable definitions of career education and evaluation were arrived at through conferences with principals and administrators and the IBEX staff. The three major components on which IBE rests: information users, information domains, and evaluation questions, were carefully reviewed and given priority ranks in the evaluation. Major concerns in terms of evaluating the program which, in essence, were inadequacies that the staff of District II had experienced with other programs and program evaluations, were formulated. Overall, IBEX proved to be an integral part of the change process in the district. However, because the post-test data has not yet been collected and analyzed, the results of the first year's effort are not yet known. (RC)
