An Exemplary Career Education Project for Southeast Arkansas. Interim Report (June 1, 1974-June 30, 1975).
Robinson, Fred T., III
The interim report outlines the second year objectives of a proposed three-year K-12 exemplary career education project for southeast Arkansas. A program description and evaluation of the project are provided by the evaluator. Grades K-7 focused upon knowledge about work were more significant than increases in self-awareness. Grades eight and nine focused upon vocational orientation. Grade nine also experienced career counseling. These students displayed minimal increases in awareness of and knowledge about work. There was no increase in ninth grade students' career decision-making knowledge. Grades 10-12 focused upon vocational exploration, preparation, cooperative education, and counseling and placement activities. This program had little effect at the twelfth grade level, although students did benefit from placement and referral services. It is recommended that the program be continued after an examination of program activities and measurement techniques. The evaluation design summary charts for each component listing measurement instruments and data collection procedures are appended. (KJ)
