Research and Development Project in Career Education. Evaluation Report. Russellville, Arkansas, 1973-1975.
Roberts, Lawrence H.; Andrew, Larry Dean
The extent to which specific program objectives were achieved is the focus of the third party evaluation report of the Russellville (Arkansas) two-year K-12 career education project. A brief description of the background, personnel variables (students and staff), and process variables (organization, activities, and objectives) are presented. Evaluation findings for 19 program objectives for both years of the project are detailed in narrative and tabular form. Evaluation instruments included standardized and staff-developed tests, attitude questionnaires, and project records. A chart summarizing the evaluation results shows, for each objective: the measuring instrument(s) used, the expected performance, the target population, results, and whether or not the objective was achieved. Summary statements, conclusions, recommendations, and an appendix containing the standardized measuring instruments used in the evaluation complete the report. Almost all of the objectives were achieved, and there has been a very positive response from students, teachers, and the community. Community involvement was one of the outstanding features of the project. During the 1974-75 year, 788 people from the community participated by serving as classroom speakers or resource persons, sponsoring field trips, or donating materials. (RG)
