Complete Occupational Educational Development (COED). Final Evaluation Report.
Gustafson, Richard A.; And Others
The three-year project was designed to plan, test, and implement a comprehensive career education program in grades K-12 in 14 schools. Implementation strategy was organized in three phases: teacher awareness, development of curriculum materials, and classroom implementation. Specific objectives were developed for each of the three phases for each fiscal year. The final evaluation report consists of two subsections: (1) the evaluation of project goals and objectives and (2) interviews with key participants. Goals and objectives in each of the three phases are discussed in terms of activities completed. Impact of classroom implementation was measured by use of student tests, with test results shown in tabular form. Interviews were conducted with administrators, counselors, and teachers concerning their involvement, assessment, and future commitment to the development of career education. Comments of the superintendent and the assistant superintendent of schools are presented. Results of other interviews are grouped by high school, junior high, and elementary level. While it was determined that the project achieved its objectives in the areas of teacher awareness and curriculum development, recommendations for future implementation include strong leadership by a professional administrator, awareness and commitment from the superintendent and board of education, and a long-range plan. Appended is the evaluation design. (RG)
