Third Party Evaluation Report for the Wisconsin Career Education Consortium, Project No. 554AH50646.
Halfin, Harold; And Others
Seven Wisconsin school districts formed a consortium to improve district level implementation of career education, K-12. Each district developed assessment and/or evaluation instruments to meet their specific needs, and circulated these instruments among all seven districts for review and feedback. After revision and field testing, these instruments were compiled in a kit and made available to other school districts. Each consortium district also produced and disseminated demonstration packets (twenty-two altogether) based on various facets of career education. Finally, each district was engaged in activities to meet its own needs and objectives. (This third-party evaluators' report includes evaluation decisions, evaluation/data analysis procedures, data collection instruments, and data summaries. Available separately are the consortium-wide performance report, CE 017 649, and the individual performance reports, CE 017 650.) Results indicated that the consortium project made a significant contribution to the enhancement of career education in the state, developed a number of good quality products, met incremental change levels identified by the schools, and provided dissemination activities that were effective and comprehensive in scope. Recommendations were made to increase the scope of the instruments and to determine their criterion-related validities. (Author/BM)
