A Review of Career Education Evaluation Studies. Monographs on Career Education.
Enderlein, Thomas E.
Results of several evaluation studies of career education are summarized in this monograph including the results reported in four papers prepared for the Office of Career Education and of several unsolicited reports. Evaluation data is assessed in the specific areas of career awareness, career decisionmaking, and academic achievement. Other ways to determine program effectiveness are also examined. The author discusses the definition of the term career awareness, and a table presents a summary of 16 studies related to either career awareness or self-awareness. A review of six studies indicates a positive relationship between career education and the development of career decisionmaking skills. The author cites 12 studies on the relationship between career education and academic achievement or the acquisition of basic skills. Under "Other Ways of Assessing Effectiveness," nine studies on the attitudes of teachers, students, and volunteers toward career education are examined. Several tables appear in the body of the report. Twelve of the 31 pages are devoted to a bibliography. (LMS)
