The project objectives focused on career motivation (K-6); career orientation (grades 7-8); and career exploration (grades 9-l0). Inservice was provided for the project staff, and post-evaluation of the inservice activities indicated a positive change in staff attitudes toward career education. Project objectives were evaluated by a pre- posttest design developed by a third-party evaluator. The affective part of the evaluation component communicated a significant change of student attitudes and values (K-10). The students also demonstrated a significant change in content information pertaining to career orientation (K-8), and career information (9-10). Both district staff and participating students were complimentary in regard to the program. (Author/BM)
