An Evaluation of the CERES Model Project--Career Education Responsive to Every Student, Ceres, California.
Aslanian, Carol B.; Paul, Regina H.
The CERES (Career Education Responsive to Every Student) Model Project for grades K-12 was evaluated by an outside party as well as internally by project staff (see CE 017 740). The external summative evaluation was limited to assessing project effectiveness based on pre- and posttests for the following objectives: (1) career education knowledge and awareness, career choice, and obtaining information about careers in grades 7 and 8; (2) job application skills in grade 9; (3) knowledge of auto mechanics, basic vocabulary, and career education information in auto-English classes; (4) improvement in attitude toward, and increase in knowledge of, career education among teaching interns; and (5) developing a pilot testing program to evaluate career education in elementary schools. It was concluded that CERES staff members function well as a team and receive much support from administrators, teachers, and the community; that career education seems strongest at the elementary level and at the skill-preparation level in the secondary schools; that the special education component needs more leadership, and articulation should be improved among all components; that the project has not only increased the students' career awareness but has also favorably influenced preservice teaching interns; and that a stronger conceptual framework, as well as more effective instructional materials, needs to be developed.
