Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
The report provides an interim assessment and discussion of the activities of the Research for Better Schools' Employer-Based Career Education Program during FY 1974. The introduction (section 1) outlines the report's format and summarizes the evaluation staff's activities. The summative evaluation overview (section 2) and the formative evaluation overview (section 3) present the rationale for both types of evaluation and generally describe the processes used for each. Section 4 and 5, on student populations and instruments and procedures, describe the students in the activities of the career education program, the groups of students used for comparisons, and the tests and means of administration used to make the comparison between the groups. Section 6 deals with pretest results for which the analysis is completed. Section 7 deals specifically with the common instruments being cooperatively developed by the four employer-based career education programs and the National Institute of Education. Section 8 presents summative evaluation results which deal with testing hypotheses relating to the career education program in general. Section 9 presents formative evaluation results which are specific to the Research for Better Schools' implementation of a career education program. Section 10 summarizes the report and makes recommendations. (Author)
