A Survey of the Career Development Institute Exploratory Program for Investigating Training in a Cluster of Vocational Occupations.
Hauck, Rich; Lenhart, Michael
To provide information about changing educational and vocational opportunities for students from small, rural North Dakota secondary schools, a Career Development Institute was established at the North Dakota State School of Science. The purpose of the Institute was to broaden students' knowledge of the opportunities available to them in the world of work. Participants of the Institute's first four years (1970-1973) were surveyed for their ratings of the career development program. Data and findings are presented under three major headings: students (214 responding), parents (165 responding), and schools (163 surveyed). Students indicated that the Institute was helpful in choosing a career, that they learned of new career areas, and that the Institute program would be beneficial for all high school students. Survey responses from parents and schools also indicated that the Institute appeared to be an effective way to broaden knowledge of career opportunities and to help students plan educational programs to fit their career plans. The survey instruments, tabulated responses to the surveys, and comments from parents and schools are appended. (MF)
