Area High Schools Senior Survey Results.
State Fair Community Coll., Sedalia, MO.
The job development, job placement, and follow-up program reported on is an exemplary project in vocational education that includes 10 cooperating high schools located in a three-county area. The program is designed to prepare high school seniors and early school leavers to make positive transition from school to suitable employment or post-secondary training. The problem studied was to determine the students' need for job development and placement activities and to demonstrate the need for placement assistance within the school setting. Prior activities of students related to work experiences, work habits, job-seeking skills, mobility, preparation for the world of work, and their career plans were required not only for developing future student world-of-work programs but also for the implementation of the placement program. Data was gathered by use of the Student Career Placement Questionnaire, World of Work Survey, and the Career Plans Survey. Responses to each of the 77 items from the three survey questionnaires are tabulated and grouped respectively; results are reported as percentages, and the means of selected items are reported. Statistical comparisons are made between schools for selected items, and a composite of responses from students in 10 schools gives an overview. (Author/AJ)
