Career Education in Ohio. Highlights of Career Development Program Implementation and Evaluation Results 1970 to 1980.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
This report contains results, both in narrative and chart form, of the implementation and evaluation of Ohio's K-10 career development program. Introductory charts indicate program growth and funding, 1970 to 1980. The next section contains results of the Career Skills Assessment Program (CSAP) administered to tenth graders in 20 school districts. Charts present evaluation results in terms of comparison of the average percent right of students in Program Centers (school districts having the career development program) and Control Centers (those with no formal career development program). The six measures of the CSAP are (1) Self Evaluation and Development Skills, (2) Career Awareness Skills, (3) Work Effectiveness Skills, (4) Personal Economics Skills, (5) Employment Seeking Skills, and (6) Career Decision-Making Skills. Summative evaluation results (assessment of attitudes) are then presented for current seniors, former students, school district personnel, and community members. Four major recommendations coming from the summative evaluation are listed. (YLB)
