Technical Assistance in Evaluating Career Education Projects. Final Report. Volume V: The Career Choice Substudy.
Strang, Ernest W.
This document contains the fifth of five volumes reporting the activities and results of a career education evaluation project conducted to accomplsih the following two objectives: (1) to improve the quality of evaluations by career education projects funded by the United States Office of Career Education (OCE) through the provision of technical assistance to fifteen of these projects; and (2) to identify, as a result of this technical assistance effort, a field tested model which can be used by other career education projects funded by OCE in future evaluation efforts. This volume contains the design and results of a related substudy conducted to determine the relationships of career education to secondary students' career choices. Chapter 1 presents an introduction which provides the rationale for the substudy. Chapter 2 describes the evaluation design in detail. Chapter 3 contains the results obtained from the Future Plans Questionnaire administered for this study. Finally, chapter 4 presents recommendations and implications. Some of the findings reported in chapter 4 are the following: (1) female students tended to choose traditional occupations; (2) members of minority groups and females did select occupations in which members of their respective groups have been underrepresented; and (3) exposure to career education does interact with some student characteristics and affects the pattern of career choices made by students.
