Guided Occupational Orientation Project: Evaluation. Final Report, Volume II.
Holder, Harold H.; And Others
The third-party evaluation, divided into six sections, begins with a history and background of the project. The three goals for elementary, junior high, and secondary education were: awareness, orientation and exploration, and job training and placement. In chapter 2, the evaluation of the elementary program (which included only fifth and sixth graders) utilized pre- and post-tests revealing an improvement in awareness and information. Teacher evaluation of the project was also employed. In chapter 3, the evaluation of the junior high program (grades 7-9), utilizing an attitude test, indicated students did not make positive attitude gains. Chapter 4 presents the evaluation of the senior high school programs aimed at the general student population, dropouts, potential dropouts, and under-achievers. Pre- and post-tests results concerning employability and career information revealed positive gains. Tables present the data from all the evaluation tests and ratings. An examination of the programs for under-achievers is provided. In chapter 5, a discussion of the project administration and staff presents the data from teacher ratings that record positive attitudes regarding administrative coordination. Chapter 6 outlines implications and recommendations that call for further evaluation, curriculum revision, teacher support, and expansion of the program. (JB)
