Exemplary Career Resource Center for Grades 6 through 9 in Pennsylvania.
Scott, Harry, Jr.
The evaluation of an exemplary career resource center (CRC) developed for the Wyoming Valley West School District, Kingston, Pennsylvania, is presented. Questionnaires were used to assess the CRC in terms of information collection, evaluation and storage, client usage, and attitudinal factors and were completed by approximately 1,000 seventh and eighth grade students served by it. Program objectives, evaluation methods and procedures, findings and their analysis by objective, and recommendations are examined. Tables supplement the text. Appended material includes the student evaluation form with response data, a sample log sheet, and a summary of the equipment and materials evaluation. Results indicated that the CRC was highly successful in organizing and maintaining all necessary hardware and software. Improvement needs to be made in methods of permitting students to use the CRC because of the great interest and too large of a student body for the amount of equipment, room size, and available assistance. The overall attitudes of pupils was promising. (Author/LH)
