Bingham County Developmental Career Education Emphasizing Career Awareness, Orientation, Exploration, and Preparation for the World of Work. Second Interim Report.
Nixon, Bert W.
Covering the time period from July 1, 1974 to June 30, 1975, the second interim report describes the objectives, activities, results, and accomplishments to date of a career education project serving nearly 10,000 K-12 students in five school districts in Southeastern Idaho. Continued implementation during the second operational year included the following major accomplishments: a two-week teacher inservice workshop, development and dissemination of curriculum units, a followup study of high school graduates, introduction of a new skill training program, and a survey of utilization of one of the mobile resource units. The third party evaluation (88 pages) was done by the College of Education of Idaho State University. Evaluation instruments included student testing, questionnaires, and review of records and materials. Findings are reported for each of the seven project objectives and measure the extent to which the objectives have been attained. Evaluation of processes focuses primarily on the teacher inservice workshop. Recommendations emphasize the need for improving the functioning of participating school personnel. Appendixes include a 10-page chart summarizing the evaluation strategy, survey instruments, results of the Self-Observation Scales Test, amended project objectives, and list of project-developed materials.
