CSRA CESA Project for Incremental Improvement in Career Education. Final Report, October 1, 1978, to September 30, 1979.
Harper, Margaret T.
This document contains the final and evaluation reports of a Central Savannah River Area Cooperative Educational Services Agency (CSRA CESA) career education project to effect incremental improvements in elementary, junior high, and senior high schools in the Columbia County School System. The final report describes these major activities: infusion of career education into teaching of basic skills, establishment of resource centers and a teacher advisory system, and development of implementation materials (guide for implementation of the teacher advisory system and three teacher guides). (Some guides are available separately--see note.) The evaluation report describes the final evaluation to determine student and teacher advancement during the project (1976-79). Following a discussion of program components, goals, and objectives, results are given of the evaluation, which used four process instruments: Program of Exploration in Career Education Knowledge Test (PECE), Self Observation Scales, Senior High Assessment of Reading Performance, and Criterion Reference Testing on Career Development (CRT). These results indicating program success are reported: scores improved for the PECE and CRT and were often higher than Georgia norms, and responses to a Teacher Survey showed that teachers felt good about career education. Extensive tables of results and scores and statistical analysis are included. (YLB)
