Program goals of Project CHOICE were evaluated in terms of their ability to develop procedures to identify educational, family, and racial barriers to fulfillment of potential in sophomore girls, to design and use strategies for removing internalized and institutional barriers, and to be validated as effective intervention measures. Results of the program outcomes indicated that: (1) talent identification is feasible, particularly for large high schools, through use of the Talent Inventory and Rating Sheet; (2) in all socioeconomic sectors parents demonstrate a growing receptivity to career education; (3) social context is a powerful determinant of talent manifestation; (4) talented young women tend to be multiply talented; (5) critical differentiating features appear to lie in the value domain but not as a function of school control per se; and (6) individual and school differences seem to be far more prepotent for pinpointing career guidance needs than are family background factors per se. There is an underlying need of female adolescents, particularly among the affluent, to express their independence from their parents. Extensive data tables are appended. (Author/HLM)
