Hawaii Career Development Continuum, K-14. Final Report.
Ryan, T. Antoinette
Describing the third phase of a three-phase project designed to provide Hawaiian students with career education programs, the document focuses on training school personnel in implementing career development into existing curriculum and developing instruments for assessing student growth in career development. Inservice training was received by 286 participants in seven, separate, two-day workshops which were activity-oriented. Tests, developed for grades three, six, nine, and twelve, measure achievement categories of self-realization, economic efficiency, civic responsibility, and social relationships. Test design incorporates ease of administration and scoring, with provisions for student questions. Pilot testing occurred at each grade level and teacher evaluation was received. Recommendations for future training programs include a two level approach with careful selection of advanced level participants, and the involvement of administrators, counselors, and community representatives. Testing recommendations include data analysis, lower level test administration to low reading ability students, and incorporating tests into counseling and classroom situations. The outside evaluator, though critical of the program in many aspects, found it did meet its inservice training goals. Sixty two figures and tables are included; a list of advisory committee members, sample workshop agenda, and the tests and administrator manuals for each grade level are appended. (LH)
