The field test report on the "Yearnings and Earnings" instructional unit for grade 4 is one of a series of reports on the Arizona developed Career Education Curriculum Units. Presented is specific information as to the success of the units in terms of the learner's cognitive, affective, and psychomotor behavior according to expressed performance and behavioral objectives. Cognitive and student and teacher attitudinal data were collected from five sites and projects in Arizona. Following the introduction, a brief description of the unit is given. The body of the document presents and discusses various tables showing field test results in the following areas: (1) information describing the field test, including demographic characteristics of both participating teachers and learners, (2) attitudinal data from both teachers and learners concerning the unit, (3) learner performance data on the lessons' specific items, and (4) teacher recruitment, refinement data, analysis, and comments. Four brief conclusions and recommendations are included. The document concludes with two appendixes: statistics and tabular data on student and teacher attitudes and a sample of the field test instrument package--UNIVAL (forms and questionnaires on student and teacher attitudes and student performance).
