The Product Engineering of a System for Upgrading High School Career Planning Programs; Technical Report: A Case Study in Educational Technology. Research and Development Series No. 104.
Suzuki, Warren N.; And Others
The technical report has provided a functional description of an operational program planning and evaluation component called Operation Guidance, which is part of the Career Planning Support System (CPSS). (The CPSS, a systematic approach to improving high school career planning programs, has addressed itself to the critical career guidance deficiencies of career development of minority youth, career development of women, program planning and evaluation, and the transition from school to work.) Operation Guidance will provide a package of manuals, procedural guides, audiovisual aids, and inservice materials that are designed to serve as a tool with which individual high schools can design, implement, and evaluate their own career planning programs. Following an introductory section, Section 2 traces product development, Section 3 describes methodology, Section 4 discusses design decision, and Section 5 describes the national field test. Field testing is scheduled from September 1974 to June 1976, with the entire CPSS materials scheduled for availability in late 1976. Approximately half of the document consists of supplementary appendixes, including Operation Guidance product elements, product and installation specifications, plan for behavioral objectives, product engineering phase position description, and national field test position description (school coordinator for Operation Guidance).
