Career Awareness of Elementary School Children.
Fadale, LaVerna M.
The purpose of the study was to develop an instrument to assess the career awareness possessed by elementary school children in order to provide base-line information for curriculum decisions. The instrument was formulated from established career content resources congruent with developmental theory. Validation was accomplished with data collected in an individual student interview format conducted with a random sample of elementary school children. Results indicated the existence of career awareness as defined, and gave assessments of individual variability within the construct of career awareness. (Author)
