The report describes an evaluation of seven affective and cognitive traits of 40 of the 44 students in the Appalachia Educational Laboratory's Employer-Based Career Education (AEL/EBCE) program during the 1972-73 program year as measured by the Student Information System (SIS). All students were tested in February and in May 1973; Group One students (those matriculating in September 1972) had had one semester's exposure to AEL/EBCE before testing, and Group Two students (those matriculating in January 1973) had had none. In the February test, Group One students appeared to have superior psychomotor creativity and superior maturity, but were inferior in learning attitude to Group Two students. In the May test, the difference in psychomotor creativity between the two groups was less and was not statistically significant. The difference between the groups in learning attitude, maturity, cognitive skills, personal adjustment, social adjustment, and flexibility remained approximately the same. Given these findings, the traits that were measured by the Student Information System questionnaire appear not to have been affected by the EBCE program. (Author/JR)
