Oregon Consortium for Incremental Development of Exemplary Career Education Programs, 1975-76. Phase I. Final Report.
Armstrong, John A.
The Oregon Consortium for Incremental Development of Exemplary Career Education Programs had three major thrusts: (1) plans were made to upgrade levels of career education (K-12) based on 14 specified assessment categories; (2) each of the five participating consortium districts focused its efforts on one specific program category (the program categories were career guidance, staff development, curriculum processes, student participation, and communications); and (3) the criteria of the fourteen career education assessment categories were used, examined, and revised. Major emphasis was given to maximum ongoing, two-way flow of intraconsortium information between the project director and district coordinators, between target schools and other schools in consortium districts, and between consortium districts; and intrastate, between consortium districts and other Oregon school districts. At the end of phase I of this three-year project, the consortium had accomplished all its objectives, except for the pilot testing of the revised Career Education Assessment Guide Criteria. Plans were made for several schools to undertake this task the following year. The most visible results of the project were the five "how-to-do-it" models on career guidance, staff development, student participation, curriculum, and communication. These models were disseminated to schools throughout the state and nation. (Author/BM)
