Exercises given to a national probability sample of 9-year-olds, 13-year-olds, 17-year-olds, and young adults (ages 26-35) to measure achievement of five broad objectives of career and occupational development (COD) are contained in this document. (The exercises were administered by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), an information-gathering project that surveys the educational attainments of the above four groups in 10 learning areas, one of which is career and occupational development--COD.) The COD released exercises are grouped according to the five objectives and their subobjectives, the objectives of which follow: (1) Prepare for making career decisions, (2) improve career and occupational capabilities, (3) possess skills that are generally useful in the world of work, (4) practice effective work habits, and (5) have positive attitudes toward work. The introduction provides an explanation of the exercises and the documentation pages, scoring, results, populations and subpopulations, sampling, computations, and data-table pages. The major portion of this report provides copies of the released exercises, complete documentation about administration and scoring procedures, and national results for each foil and/or scoring category. It is noted that this report may be useful to researchers who need detailed information about the exercises and State and local educators who want to use National Assessment exercises in their own assessment programs.
