An Evaluation of Project EXCEL: Experience Based Career Education Learning Program.
Croft, Don B.
This report presents evaluative information about Project EXCEL (experience-based career education learning program) for the 1978-79 school year. Eight evaluation instruments were used by the third-party evaluator to collect data: (1) student information questionnaire, (2) student plans and perceptions survey, (3) parent opinion survey, (4) resource persons questionnaire, (5) socialization profile, (6) comprehensive test of basic skills, (7) assessment of career development, and (8) student attitude survey. Among the findings of the evaluation was that males comprised approximately two-thirds of the total number of EXCEL students. The 1978-79 EXCEL students reported that they learned a great deal about career planning and career expectations. Parents viewed the EXCEL program as a better school experience than previously encountered by their children. No significant pre- to post-attitude change scores were obtained for the EXCEL students with reference to career planning, careers, attitudes about self, and attitudes toward others. (LRA)
