A Third-Party Evaluation of the Florida Comprehensive Program for Career Development: K-Universities. Annual Evaluation Report FY 74-5.
The Florida Comprehensive Program for Career Development: K-Universities is a consortium effort to develop a coordinated and comprehensive career education program for students in two public school districts, a community college, and a university. Components of the project include guidance, curriculum, and placement/followup. Third party evaluation by Educational Testing Service for the first year of project operations included orientation, designing a comprehensive future evaluation plan, reviewing project reports and similar data, and reviewing analyses of student data based upon measures related to project objectives. Tentative conclusions are that the project has initiated activities for all proposed components and target groups; exceptional project achievements are noted in the areas of communication and inservice training. Analyses of pre/post student measures of self-awareness and career knowledge showed no significant changes. Tentative recommendations include more advanced planning of inservice activities, more project resources allocated to career education programs at the postsecondary level, and careful defining of the project's role in implementation for each component and target group level. approximately 75 pages consist of appendixes: evaluation plan for fiscal year 1976, reviews of self-awareness and career knowledge instruments, and a review of student data collected during fiscal year 1975.
