Evaluation and Research on Experience-Based Career Education at Far West School.
Christensen, Paul; And Others
Far West School (FWS) is an experienced-based, career-oriented, alternative secondary program. It uses the entire community as a learning resource to enable students to acquire skills and knowledge necessary to adopt and find satisfaction in adult roles. In the evaluation, important hypotheses were that relative to comparison students, FWS students would: (1) show more positive attitudes toward education and careers; (2) develop at least as well in the basic skills; and (3) show more positive growth in self-knowledge, interpersonal skills, and career information/planning. Measures used in statistical analyses are described; some analyses and results are presented. (Author)
