Research and Development Project in Career Education. [Providence, Rhode Island] Final Report.
Nixon, William J., Jr.
The project, conducted from June 1973 to December 1974, was designed to further the development of career education activities in Rhode Island. The goals and objectives of the project were as follows: (1) a synthesis of statewide and national information regarding career education models; (2) development of three model types focusing on the specific problems of urban, rural, and suburban settings; (3) establishment of a broad based advisory committee for the State; (4) a conference involving representatives from each local educational agency in Rhode Island; (5) a career education state of the art paper; and (6) three plans for the implementation of career education in local school districts. The body of the report explains in detail the procedures involved in carrying out the project objectives. The third party independent evaluation entails both formative and summative analyses of the various process and product objectives. The method for collecting information for these analyses principally consisted of review and interview of project staff at critical stages. The conclusions are that through the activities of the project, career education awareness has reached business leaders and the public sector and more people have a better understanding and are more receptive to the concept. Appendixes, making up the body of the report, include instruments and products developed in the course of the project. (Author/NJ)
