Field Testing and Revision of the AIR Career Education Curriculum.
Dunn, James A.
The American Institutes for Research (AIR) has been involved in the design and development of career education curriculum materials for well over a decade, even before the term was originated by the U.S. Office of Education. This led to the involvement of AIR in the design and development of the Comprehensive Career Education Model (CCEM). Four general constraints under which career education programs must operate are: they must be economically feasible, they must be able to operate with regular classroom staffing patterns, they must be considerate of teacher time and effort, and they must fit the needs of local users. Important factors determining the adoption of such programs are acquisition cost and teachers' and administrators' perceptions of the potential classroom utility of the material. All these aspects, and others, will be considered in the process of field testing and revision of curriculum units for CCEM. (SA)
