Objectives for Career and Occupational Development. Second Assessment. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
Objectives for the second national assessment of career and occupational development (COD) are listed under two major categories: (1) Knowledge, abilities, and attitudes relevant to career decisions and (2) knowledge, abilities and attitudes necessary for success in a career or occupation. Each category is broken down into several subheadings followed by the objectives for each of four age categories--ages 9, 13, 17, and 26-35. An outline of the objectives serves as an index, and a brief introductory chapter describes the procedures followed in developing these objectives (which are a revision of those used for the first national assessment of COD in 1973-74). Preface material includes notes on the major goals of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which gathers information about the knowledge, skills, understanding, and attitudes of young people ages 9, 13, 17, and 26-35 in 10 learning areas, one of which is career and occupational development (COD). A list of the advisory panel and of the subject-matter and lay people who reviewed the COD objectives is appended. (JT) Primary type of information provided by report: Assessment Instrument (Objectives); Procedures (Objectives Development).
