A Proposal to Develop and Implement a Comprehensive Career Education Program K-14 in a Three-County Non-Urban Area in Missouri. Interim Report.
Navara, James L.
Covering the period of June 1974 to May 1975, the report describes and evaluates the second year activities of a comprehensive K-14 career education project in a three-county rural area of Missouri. As a result of the third party evaluation the following conclusions were reached. The project has had a desired positive impact on teachers in the 10 school districts served, has established communication between project staff and the schools, and has been active and moderately effective in the area of placement services. Considerable use of audiovisual materials was made with 92% of the respondents rating the materials as good or excellent. Inservice training was provided to all professional members in 9 of the 10 districts with the "how to" type of workshops and on-site assistance receiving high ratings. No significant difference was shown from the test data in grades 3 and 9 between nonparticipants and participants on self-awareness, and knowledge about jobs and career decisions. Results of the test data in grade 12 showed significant differences between mean scores of participants and the normative groups. Appendixes include lists of personnel, resource materials, sample survey instruments, other project-related materials/information, and a bibliography. (Author/NJ)
