A Project to Demonstrate Incremental Improvements in a K-12 Career Education Program through an Exemplary Model. Evaluation Report.
Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit, Edinboro, PA.
Progress toward four stated objectives in a K-12 career education project was determined after examining the field testing results of students, interviews, and data analysis. Satisfactory progress was made toward objective 1: revising, expanding, and refining two computer retrieval career education units. On a developer questionnaire teachers reacted favorably to the unit revision objective. (Field testing was not completed during the project.) Objective 2, evaluated as successful, was to demonstrate a computer-retrieval system to be used as a teacher aid in individualizing and integrating the units. User questionnaire responses indicated generally that teachers favorably reacted to unit materials, methodology, and content. Objective 3, to demonstrate that the units meet students' academic and career development needs, was evaluated using control and experimental groups in a pretest and posttest design. The basic conclusion was that the career education unit was an effective means for increasing achievement in career knowledge at the elementary level. The final objective was to provide inservice training to school personnel and community representatives. Implementation of a course, "Orientation and Implementation of Career Education, K-12," was evaluated as a positive step toward achieving this objective. A questionnaire revealed that the staff considered the course a successful undertaking. (Appendixes include evaluation instruments. (CSS)
