Evaluation of the Community Experiences for Career Education Program.
Owens, Thomas R.; Fehrenbacher, Harry L.
The Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) model being developed and tested in four regions of the United States, under the sponsorship of the National Institute of Education, reflects a nationwide interest in discovering new ways to help adolescents handle the psychological, social, and economic complexities of modern life. This paper reports the attempts to integrate and apply diverse research methodologies needed to evaluate an individualized experience-based program. Problems encountered in undertaking the evaluation of the EBCE Project called Community Experiences for Career Education (in Tigard, Ore.) and the results of the second-year evaluation there are discussed in this presentation.
