Handbook for the Evaluation of Career Education Programs (Draft).

Because of the pragmatic need of school districts to respond to questions posed by those interested in their efforts to implement career education and the equally practical need to further its definition, there exists a demand to assess the results of efforts to implement the concept. The main body of this monograph provides an operational approach to meeting these two needs. It outlines steps which a local school district can follow in conducting an evaluation of its career education effort. A longer term result of following these steps would be the accumulation of information necessary to determine the extent to which the objectives associated with the concept have been achieved; that is, the baseline data for determining whether or not these are individual attributes which should be fostered. If the framework provided is followed and the results are shared with USOE, it is expected that both local needs for assessment and national needs for policy information and further theoretical development will be met.
