A field test was designed and conducted to examine the effectiveness of Arizona-designed career education units, particularly to examine the units' success in terms of their ability to affect positively students' cognitive, affective, and psychomotor behavior according to expressed performance and behavioral objectives. Fourteen career education units in nine projects were field tested. Data were gathered through UNIVAL, a panel review, and a community review, with approximately 5,000 students and 174 teachers included in the study. Of the students, 51 percent were female and 49 percent male; 61 percent were Anglo and 39 percent from minority groups. Of the teachers, 54 were male and 120 were female. Teacher attitude toward career education was fairly high and moderately positive toward the particular units. Student response to the units was positive, and learner performance was a high 80 percent. Measurements for each unit were calculated, based on teacher attitude, learner attitude, and learner performance. Student demographic data were subjected to an ethnic profile, and 14 cost factors analyzed for each unit. It was concluded that all 14 units in the field set were sufficiently satisfactory to be included in the 1974-75 statewide implementation program. (AG)
