Employer-Based Career Education; FY 73 Evaluation Report.
Herron, Marshall; And Others
The Employer-Based Career Education Program in Tigard, Oregon was designed to have students participate in a variety of individualized learning activities. Most of the 29 students completed eight employer site explorations, spent 108 days in learning experiences on three employer sites, completed seven projects and five single objectives, were tutored in two skills, and participated in many hours of independent study, seminars, counseling, and enrichment activities. In tests of student growth, the students remained about the same in basic skills and self-concepts, but reached competence level in a number of survival skills, and improved their writing skills. Seniors reached a high level of career maturity. As judged by employers, students improved in their work performance, adherence to work schedules, acceptance of responsibility, interest in and enthusiasm for work, judgment, ability to work with others, and ability to learn through work experience. All those involved were enthusiastic about the program. The evaluation lists the project's goals and an evaluation of the progress made toward each goal. Evaluation questions and statistical data are presented and discussed. The presentation of program results include data on: employer learning sites; student learning experiences; student growth; employer, parent, and student appraisal; and outside evaluation.
