Determination of the Most Effective Procedures for Implementation of School-Wide Junior High Career Exploratory Experiences and for the Placement and Follow-up of All Exiting Students K-14. Volume 2. Final Evaluation Report.
Loree, M. Ray
The State of Alabama career education-exploration and placement project was an attempt to organize and study alternate methods of providing career education to students in the junior and senior high grades. Emphasis was placed on "exploration" at the junior high level, whereas the major program goals for older students revolved around the development of procedures to insure the placement of all exiting students in either a job, a postsecondary occupational program, or a baccalaureate program. Ten sites, five exploration and five placement, participated in the project during the 1973-74 school year. Volume 2 consists of the third party evaluation and is reported in three sections: management, exploration, and placement. The exploration and placement components are further subdivided into product evaluation (data from tests and output in the form of suggested successful methods) and process evaluation (procedures and activities). Appended materials (53 pages) include: site selection criteria, program participant guidelines, procedural suggestions for individual project sites, examples of different instructional methods utilized, administrative memoranda, listing of project concerns, conference schedules and discussion outlines, project methods by individual site, a placement program model, and a followup questionnaire.
