The Efficacy of Career Education, Career Decision-Making.
Masucci, Michael J.
The report examines and reports on the various attempts to evaluate pupil behavior sought by career education efforts in career decision making. The paper concentrates attention on programs designed to operate at the secondary school level and was further delimited by a Statement of Work issued by the Office of Career Education. The statement included (1) review literature which is available within the Office of Career Education and other career education agencies, (2) gather input from State coordinators of career education in the 50 States and from local practitioners of career education, (3) emphasize to the greatest extent possible that the data reported represent application of a particular and well defined treatment. Most of the program materials reviewed for this study indicate a relatively informal approach to career education implementation as well as a relatively informal approach to evaluation of the programs. Examination of all the papers indicates that much activity in career decision making is included in the programs but that a sound theoretical research base for prescribing and reporting these events is lacking.
