A Report of the Project Statewide Infusion of Career Education into the Preparation of Teachers, Counselors and Administrators. Final Evaluation Report.
Myers, Leo W.
A third-party evaluation was conducted during the second year of operations of the project Statewide Infusion of Career Education into the Preparation of Teachers, Counselors and Administrators. Sponsored by Oregon's Interinstitutional Consortium for Career Education (ICCE, which is composed of all Oregon institutions of higher education which prepare teachers, counselors, and administrators), this project focused on three essential aspects of preparing educational personnel for expanded and extended roles in career education. Those aspects are staff development for college and university faculties; program development for preparation of teachers, counselors, and administrators; and teacher certification and training program accreditation. Three types of evaluative data were collected: self-evaluation data, user evaluation data, and third-party evaluation data. The evaluation procedures employed sought the answers to the following questions: (1) How can a state infuse career education into its personnel preparation programs through a statewide system of higher education? (2) Is it realistic for career education concepts, methods, and procedures to become an integral part of teacher, counselor, and administrator education content? and (3) What measurable changes in attitudes toward career education were evidenced and what observable changes were there in staff and student behavior? Positive shifts in attitudes toward career education tenets were evidenced on the part of both participating students and staff. Several evidences of student and staff changes were observed that can be attributed at least in part to the influence of the project. Evaluation instruments and response tabulations are appended. (See CE 019 260 for a description of the project activities and products.) (BM)
