Evaluation of Career Education Projects, 1975-1976. Report No. 7715.
Chern, Hermine J.; And Others
The evaluations of 26 career education programs which operated in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania school district from July 1, 1975 to June 30, 1976 are contained in this report. Generally the projects achieved their objectives, with only a few exceptions. Indications are that the career development programs currently in progress in Philadelphia are well adapted to the environment in which they are expected to function, and have been developed in accordance with the actual needs of the students they are intended to serve. Of the 26 projects evaluated, eleven of these were primarily concerned with classroom or shop instruction, six with curriculum development, and five with guidance activities. The other four projects involved staff development, job placement, and the development and refinement of a computer management system for the skills centers. Information is presented for each program separately and includes budget, project description, project history, objectives, project implementation, and project outcomes: evaluation questions, discussion, and conclusions and recommendations.
