Self Awareness Test Instrument. Final Report.
The final report of the Sioux Falls, South Dakota elementary project in career awareness and self-awareness analyzes the results of pre- and posttesting for grades 1-6, for experimental and control groups, and for males and females within individual classrooms. Three experimental and three control classes were identified in each of two elementary schools. The testing instrument for grades 1-3 was the "Pictorial Self-Concept Scale for Children in K-4," while the Self-Esteem Inventory was selected as the instrument for grades 4-6. The elementary project was developed on the concept that career awareness is related to the total development of the individual. Teachers of both experimental and control groups were all highly oriented toward helping students develop a positive self-concept; however, teachers of control classes were not provided with planned project activities. Results of pre- and posttesting indicate greater positive change in feelings about self for the experimental groups. Future recommendations were to: continue the self-awareness program for elementary students, provide adequate materials for teachers, provide the services of an elementary counselor, and arrange for inservice programs for teachers. The document contains 13 pages of supportive graphs and tables. (EA)
