Career Education Materials Analysis Instrument.
Hedstrom, Judith E.; Williams, Constance M.
An instrument for analyzing career education curriculum materials for grades K-12 is presented. The Social Science Education Consortium (SSEC), Inc. staff designed the analysis instrument to check the educational soundness and accuracy of career education materials. The booklet is divided into two main sections. Part I is a modified version of the Curriculum Materials Analysis System (CMAS) (Morrissett, et al., 1971). It contains five sections of the instrument: (1) Product Characteristics; (2) Educational Quality of Materials; (3) Career Education Content; (4) Conditions of Use; and (5) Overall Evaluation. The questions about career education content focus specifically on the treatment of careers in the materials and analyze issues such as realism, accuracy, and interdependent relationships within society. Part II of the booklet is an abbreviated version of the instrument to be used when a quick evaluation of materials is necessary. The analysis instrument is part of a series of three books to help infuse career education in the social studies. (Author/JR)
