Conceptualization of Prototype Placement Program.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center for Vocational and Technical Education.
The document reviews the career education concept briefly, presents placement services in their historical context, and relates both to the career development theories of Ginzberg, Super, Holland, and Roe. It describes the placement model, providing an examination of the model components, the program's relationship to other Comprehensive Career Education Model (CCEM) components, as well as formative and summative evaluation components. Four model components are treated in detail: school district action on the placement model, assessment of student characteristics, assessment of community characteristics, and defining the character of the local placement center. The section on support systems in the placement model focuses on the delivery system, interface with district information system, technology, and local placement programs. Research suggestions conclude the document. Appended materials include flow charts, the student assessment questionnaire, administrative instructions, an employer need survey form, local occupational data (Mesa, Arizona), an interim report on occupational outlook for Colorado, 1970-75, cover letters, program descriptions, placement forms and data, and directions for the use of the manual retrieval system.
