Work and Income: A Follow-Up Study of Career Education Model IV Students. Case Study Report No. 1.
Conrad, Rowan W.; And Others
The followup study assessed employment variables among persons who had experienced the Comprehensive Residential Family Career Education Model IV of the Mountain-Plains program. The assessment was accomplished by focusing on the current status of former Mountain-Plains students with regard to work variables: income, satisfaction derived from work, quality of work as perceived by employer, motivation to work, and alienation from work. Twenty-four disadvantaged families were sampled stratified random fashion by completion of status and area of enrollment. For comparative purposes three additional reference groups were identified and tested. The measurement techniques used for testing the variables for each group were: the Job Descriptive Index (JDI), Minnesota Satisfactoriness Scales (MSS), Job Motivation Index (JMI), Work Alienation Scale (WAS), and the Obeisance Scale (OS). The testing procedures and design, and the results for each of the variables tested are briefly discussed. Higher scores were made after the program than on entry on all variables except alienation and obeisance. The document concludes with a general discussion of the findings and a brief explanation of the study's weaknesses. A two-page bibliography is appended. (Author/BP)
