Project Evaluation Report on Guam's Career Guidance Mobile Unit: School Year 1974-75.
Rask, Michael L.; Marking, Carl E.
A project to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of a Mobile Career Guidance Laboratory is described and evaluated in detail in the document. Designed to serve all ninth grade students on Guam by providing group counseling and access to materials regarding career education, the mobile unit moved from school to school. Faculty orientation was provided and two and one-half to three hours of group and individual work was scheduled for nine students at a time. Activities included: a general explanation of career counseling; student evaluation of individual interest areas, abilities, and attitudes; discussions regarding job categories, requirements, success, and satisfaction; two films; dream time to explore aspirations; and independent study time with resource materials. Statistical evaluation by instrumentation, and participant observation were used, with the five junior high schools rated separately and together. Thirteen tables supplement the discussion. It is stated that the physical makeup, internal operation, and visitation schedule of the mobile unit were very successful in meeting career counseling needs for the ninth grade students. More counselor involvement and a followup on the mini-career information centers established at each junior high school is suggested. Project related material is appended. (LH)
