[Tigard Career Awareness and Exploratory Project. Final Interim Assessment Report.]
Oregon State Board of Education, Salem.; Tigard School District, OR.
The Tigard School District, Oregon has designated two schools as models in a long-range career education plan which includes developing programs and processes for career awareness at the elementary level and career exploration at the junior high school level. A team selected by the Oregon Board of Education carried out a formative assessment synthesizing and interpreting information gathered through interview with staff, students, administration, and community and from available written data and observers' subjective judgements. Project areas assessed were: staff development, program development, and administration. Findings were organized under project strengths, project constraints, and alternative strategies. The preliminary report was presented in simplified form to the staffs in an inservice workshop; this outline and a description of the assessment strategy comprise the report. Extensive appendixes include assessment schedules, the assessment interview questionnaires, findings of the staff surveys, summaries of the findings from the team's other assessment activities, and a compilation of the alternative strategies developed by the staffs at the inservice workshop as ways of meeting project constraints defined by the interim assessment team in their preliminary report.
