Audit and Evaluation of the Georgia Comprehensive Career Guidance Project, Grades 7-12. Final Report.
Walz, Garry R.; Benjamin, Libby
An external evaluation was conducted to assess the training packages developed by the Georgia Comprehensive Career Guidance Project (see CE 018 130 for the final report of this project). Three secondary staff development training packages (Educational Environment, CE 018 154; Work and Leisure Environments, CE 018 161; and Human Relations, CE 018 147) were evaluated for feasibility, transportability, and validity. Evaluation of project planning, communication and implementation was also conducted. Overall, the planning aspect of the management was judged to be extensive and generally effective. It was reported that participants at all levels found communication to be insufficient. The training packages were described as well organized, clear in exposition, substantive in content, and unique as a system in the breadth and comprehensiveness of their coverage. Since field testing and the implementation phase was yet to be done, the demonstrated usefulness of the materials could not be assessed. It was recommended that the manuals be analyzed to clarify the overlaps in content and activities and that an explanatory document be prepared to accompany the training packages to describe the relationships between packages and to identify specific goals, objectives, and activities within each training manual. Finally, additional changes in packaging and ideas for future development were suggested. (BM)
