Anne Arundel Career Education Project. Final Report.
The third party evaluation report covers the 1974-75 school year, the second year of the demonstration project. Summarized are the background, goals, and objectives of the project. Evaluation is centered upon four major information domains or evaluation areas of interest: student self-concept, student decision-making skills, student relationship with the world of work, and teacher attitudes towards career education. The major portion of the document consists of detailed descriptions of the testing program and the results of the four tests administered. These are the self observation scales, decision-making scale, career maturity inventory, and a teacher survey. Student test results are analyzed by sex, grade level, and administrative area within the county. Test results are summarized in the appendixes. Data reported are primarily pretest data, with post-test data to be included in the 1975-76 evaluation. It is recommended that the staff determine if sex differences in test results are due to curriculum deficiencies. Responses to the teacher survey are summarized in the report and shown by area in the appendixes. High teacher support for the project is evidenced by the integration of career education into other subject areas, effective use of materials, and high number of career education activities undertaken. A bibliography is included. (RG)
