The Conceptualization, Development and Implementation of a Comprehensive Guidance Model. [Georgia Comprehensive K-14 Career Guidance Project.] Final Report, July 1, 1975 through June 30, 1977.
A project was conducted to develop, test, and implement a comprehensive program for Georgia school systems, grades K-14. The target population included regular students, students with special needs, out-of-school youth, and adults experiencing career problems. Project objectives were to develop a K-14 guidance model, develop a state/local management system to deliver a comprehensive guidance program, and provide for a formative evaluation of existing and proposed materials. Sixteen, and eventually thirty, sites implemented the 7-12 guidance project. Three selected model sites implemented 7-12 components and were later joined by two other sites that implemented K-6. The Asche Matrix, based on knowledge/awareness of self, work, education, and decision-making formed the foundation for the guidance model's development. New materials were developed for the elementary and adult components. Two important project results were the development of elementary guidance materials and state level management procedures. Third-party evaluation of the process objectives audit, guidance model assessment, and 1975-76, 1976-77 staff development evaluations revealed that the audit and assessment objectives were most fully completed; staff development components were incomplete. Overall, a balanced evaluation was made. (Appendixes include career guidance materials; the Asche Matrix goals, support services proposal, processes review, evaluation and needs assessment instruments, K-14 model, and resources.) (CSS)
