EPIE Career Education S*E*T*. Volume 1: How to Select and Evaluate Instructional Materials. ***Selection and Evaluation Tools.
Educational Products Information Exchange Inst., Stony Brook, NY.
The document, one of two volumes which comprise the EPIE (Educational Products Information Exchange) Career Education S*E*T* (Selection and Evaluation Tools), is designed to provide schools with information needed for the evaluation and successful selection of instructional materials. Chapter 1 provides a device by which teachers and administrators can pinpoint their schools' position on career education and the procedures for materials selection. It shows how to measure the depth of the career education concepts presented within a framework of the instructional design of materials under consideration. Chapters 2 and 3 present evidence of race and sex bias found in career education materials, provide checklists for identifying bias in any materials, and suggest methods for counteracting bias found in materials being used. The final chapter explains how to assess producers' evaluation activities so that materials selectors can evaluate the efforts publishers make toward the improvement of their materials. Appended are: a list of State career education coordinators, a list of career education periodicals, a list of manuals describing skill-training materials, and a feedback form. A table of contents for volume 2 is also included. (Author/MS)
