Development of Evaluation Instruments to Determine Effectiveness of World of Work Program: Final Report.
Bethel School District, Eugene, OR.
The report describes a project designed to evaluate the effectiveness of career awareness instruction in the Bethel District (Oregon) elementary schools' World of Work program. Teachers from each grade level developed formats for the evaluation instruments which were administered to students, with the results in turn being evaluated by an evaluation committee and by outside evaluators. Analysis of the test results indicated that the instruments at some grade levels were too easy, and that questions at the fifth and sixth grade level were too social studies oriented and hence needed extensive revision. The study concluded that due to changes in curriculum it would be necessary to revise the Bethel World of Work guide. Demographic information for the study and a summary of its costs appear at the end of the report. (JR)
