Indiana Career Education. Final Project Performance Report.
Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis.
The Indiana State Advisory Council on Career Education was appointed to aid in identifying the present status and needs of career education and to interpret and disseminate such data to the general public. The needs of students were assessed through the use of six survey instruments which were administered to superintendents, principals, teachers, counselors, parents, and students (instruments appended). The student population sampled consisted of 300 seniors representing a range of educational abilities. Nine career education outcome statements were developed and included on the superintendent, principal, teacher, counselor, and parent surveys. These outcome statements were identified by the respondents as a need of students and whether the schools were meeting each need. All statements were considered important needs of the students and all but statement #5 (providing basic skills) were rated as not being met by the schools. The high school seniors responded to statements related to their school activities, experiences, and their future plans. The results of the student assessment indicate that current school programs may not be meeting the career development needs of the students. The personnel development needs were also assessed and existing and potential resources were identified. This information will be used to develop a state plan which includes short and long range objectives. (BM)
