Basic Learner Outcomes for Career Education.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Occupational Research and Development.
This publication reports the results of a statewide survey in Texas of 6,000 students, parents, educators, and representatives from business and industry to determine what were felt to be the basic components for student development in career education. The survey was conducted by a steering committee for the Assessment of Career Education, which reviewed curriculum literature on career education, visited career education projects, held work-group conferences, and compiled a list of almost 300 student characteristics that could be developed through career education. These outcomes were in turn reviewed and rated in terms of being either basic for all 17-year-olds, desirable for some 17-year-olds, or inappropriate for development in the schools. As a result of this rating process, 177 outcomes were determined as basic, and these have been sorted into nine categories. The document lists the 177 basic outcomes, under these nine headings: (1) Career Planning and Decision Making; (2) Career Information; (3) Job Acquisition and Retention; (4) Attitudes and Appreciation for Career Success; (5) Skills in Human Relationships for Careers; (6) Self-investigation and Evaluation for Career Success; (7) Personal/Work/Societal Responsibilities; (8) Economic Factors Influencing Career Opportunity; and (9) Educational/Career Opportunity Relationships.
