Ten major activities comprised the development of the Oregon State Plan for Career Education. (1) An advisory group was formed to provide advice and assistance during the developmental stages. (2) It was determined to base the plan on an assessment of student needs. (3) Goals in the areas of career awareness and exploration were evaluated and prioritized by members of the business, labor, industrial, government, and educational communities. Following the distribution of 5000 (1,273 returned) Career Education Priority Assessment instruments, a career education student competency assessment instrument was developed. (4) The Oregon Counsleor Training Needs Assessment was developed to ascertain the extent to which training and retraining of educational personnel is needed. (5) State and nationwide resources were identified by the Program Coordination Center. Additional information was obtained from the "State Career Education Resource Guide" developed on request by the National Center for Career Education at the University of Montana. (6) Following this, short and long range plans for program development and implementation were developed and (7) evaluation methods were developed in a two-phase approach. (8) An assessment of problems and changes was made, (9) followed by a description of dissemination activities and (10) special activities to be included in the plan. (The major portion of this report is appendixes, which include the instruments, data analysis, working papers, goals, and objectives.) (FP)
