The final evaluation report summarizes the FY 1974 operation of the Experience-Based Career Education Program at Far West School (FWS). The report's introduction provides a brief overview of the secondary level program and the evaluation design. Chapter 2 focuses on the procedures for the recruitment and selection of program students, discusses comparison and control student groups, and compares the demographic characteristics of these groups. Chapter 3 deals with program outcome data, discussing students, parents, and resource perceptions, attitudes and opinions about FWS and assessing student achievements. Chapter 4, outcome backup research, considers anthropological observations, an analysis of program components, test-taking attitudes, and staff-program issues. Chapter 5, model development and implementation, examines the formative evaluation of student-related procedures, and the assessment of the FWS instructional system. Chapter 6 provides a summary and conclusions, presenting generally favorable student and parent reactions to the program, and reporting success in achieving most FWS program goals in self-development, career development, and basic skill and interpersonal skill development. The program was also viewed as successful in keeping students in school and achieving community support. (JR)
