The Self Directed Career Program as a Tool for Presenting Career Information to Ninth Grade Students.
Vose, George D.
The report covers a project in the Bangor junior high schools running from the first week in October 1973 to the last week in April 1974. The study sought to find a way to upgrade the career guidance program at the junior high level with little cost in counselor time. Three junior high schools supplied the ninth grade students to be used for experimental and control groups in the study. A pre-posttest decision wh a control group was used for the first part of the test and a posttest only for the second part. In the first school the self-directed search (SDS) test without the use of the SDS kit was administered. In the second school the SDS kits were introduced into the experimental treatment. The third school was used as a control group and used neither the test nor the kits. The Crites Maturity Inventory was used to measure results to determine whether the SDS had stimulated students to seek career information on their own. Results were inconclusive. The third party evaluation (appended to the report) was conducted, recommending the use of SDS kits along with improvements in scheduling and more involvement of classroom teachers. (MU)
