Comprehensive Career Education. Final Report, 1975-76.
Maine Univ., Orono. Coll. of Education.
A comprehensive career education project in Maine was conducted on three levels: university/college-based activities; public school activities, K-12; and state department-based activities. The major objective for level I was to demonstrate to teacher educators and teacher trainees the philosophy, methods, and objectives of comprehensive career education. The major objective for level II was to demonstrate a comprehensive, integrated, and coordinated career education program in one local pilot school system (Bangor, Maine). The major objective for level III was to demonstrate procedures for initiating a Maine State Plan for Career Education. (Activities on each level are summarized by sub-objectives in this final performance report.) Evaluation plans for the public school activities utilized a pre- and posttest control group design. Several instruments were used to measure K-12 students' self-awareness, career awareness, educational awareness, decision-making skills, and appreciations and attitudes. The statistical treatments used to analyze the data were analysis of covariance, variance, and t-tests to determine if there were significant differences between the control and experimental classes (intact classes were the analysis units). (The evaluation plan is described in detail in this document; overall evaluation results are reported in CE 019 321.) Numerous related materials are appended. (BM)
