The Tennessee Exemplary Project in Career Education. Final Report.
Haaby, Gary L.
Covering the period of 1973-76, the Tennessee Exemplary Project in Career Education (TEPCE) was designed to develop a comprehensive career education program, in the Greeneville and Greene County, Tennessee, schools. Objectives for each level in the educational program were established for the awareness (K-5), exploration (6-8), preparation (9-12), and placement (postsecondary) phases of the program. Results of student testing of some 95 project and control groups, utilizing the Crites Maturity Inventory (CMI), the Crites Competence Maturity Inventory (CCMI), the Gordon Occupational Check List (GOCL), the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (TSCS), the Self-Observation Scale (SOS), and the Revised Westbrook Occupational Maturity Test, were mixed, but primarily were positive. Mean scores on the CMI, the CCMI, and the GOCL showed generally positive increases pre- and posttest (when compared to control groups), but SOS results were mixed. Subjective evaluation of TEPCE by teachers, administrators, students, and community were very positive. TEPCE offered training for staff, opportunities for staff growth through travel and program planning, a focal point of community involvement, and provided some opportunities and experiences for students that otherwise would not be available. Appendixes contain forms and materials used in the project. (TA)
