Assessment of the Career Planning Support System. Final Report.
Pearsol, James A.; And Others
The National Center for Research in Vocational Education conducted an assessment to report information about the impact of the Career Planning Support System (CPSS) on high school staffs' planning and career development activities for student career development. (CPSS is a package of materials designed to enable a high school staff to improve effectiveness of its career development program through systematic program planning.) The study used a pre-posttest, experimental and control group research design. Ten high schools used CPSS; eight did not. Two levels of measurement were used: (1) two data collection forms and a rating instrument to collect and rate information about each school's career development program and (2) test of CPSS knowledge and attitude scale related to systematic program planning to assess CPSS steering committee members in experimental schools. Findings indicated greater change in experimental than in control schools toward lnstallation of a systematic plan for career guidance, higher quality career development activities in experimental schools, and increased knowledge of CPSS and favorable attitudes of committee members in experimental schools. (Appendixes, amounting to over 60% of the report, include assessment materials and forms and other materials related to the study.) (YLB)
