Research and Development Project in Career Education. [Pennsylvania]. Final Report.
Struck, John W.; Curtis, Carroll A.
The report covers career education activities at four Pennsylvania project sites (Ebensberg, Crawford County, Philadelphia, and McKeesport): an elementary, a junior high, a K-12, and a 10-14 component. Project TIMES (Temporally Individualized Modular Education Scheduling) was incorporated in the 10-14 component at an area vocational-technical school. The computerized program included the identification of 20 career areas and the development of required skills; evaluation consisted of student/staff interviews, observation scales to assess the instructional environement, and teacher/student morale scales. The elementary component focused on the development and implementation of a model computer resource, career-oriented curriculum. Evaluation included student assessment in an experimental and two control groups in addition to staff questionnaires. The junior high component, which focused on career awareness/exploratory experiences, sponsored a one-month staff development workshop and the development of a resource center. Evaluation included workshop assessment and program evaluation by faculty and a randomly selected group of students. The K-12 component centered on self- and career awareness, career exploration, and career preparation/placement. Evaluation instruments were a self-appraisal inventory, attitude scales, and occupational information tests. Approximately one-fourth of the document consists of appendixes containing copies of various evaluative instruments. (EA)
