Project DECISION: Audiovisual-Tutorial Career Education for the High School Student. Final Report.
Waukesha County Technical Inst., Waukesha, WI.
The final report describes "Project Decision", an exemplary program designed and implemented by the Waukesha County Technical Institute (WCTI) for the 17 high schools in Waukesha County, Wisconsin. "Career libraries" were established in each high school, with an audiovisual-tutorial device and 29 filmstrips providing information on careers and career clusters, district career training and employment opportunities, and general information on WCTI for individuals and small groups. Approximately 9% of the combined student enrollment of 19,125 made use of the filmstrips, with guidance personnel providing assistance. Objectives, procedures and activities, findings, and an analysis of objective goals are presented, with eight tables presenting student and counselor evaluations of the project. Recommendations include the updating and addition of filmstrips; use of the program as a model for other schools in the Wisconsin Vocational, Technical and Adult Education system; and that audiovisual-tutorial career education be used as a supplementary rather than a sole method. It is stated that a majority of student users and guidance personnel reacted favorably to the filmstrips and felt that they assisted in making career decisions. A list of the filmstrips and guidance counselor and student project evaluation forms are appended. (LH)
