Local Opinion Surveys for Career Education.
Smey, Barbara A.
This manual is designed to train local planning team members and school supervisors/administrators to conduct surveys of local opinions regarding career education. These materials, representing a one-day workshop, consist of eight activities. Topics covered in the activities are an overview of the workshop, an introduction to survey research, statements of purpose, issue-related questions, community population and sampling, data collection methods, data processing and interpretation, and the summary report. Each activity contains a statement of purpose, its estimated time, an explanation of its format, and specific implementation suggestions. Nineteen activity handouts are provided. These include a workshop agenda, an outline of a local opinion survey, career education definitions and goal areas, a description of the elements of an operational career education program, examples of purpose statements and steps for drafting them, examples of issue-related questions and topics, procedures for developing general and demographic questions, sampling techniques, and examples of data record and analysis sheets. (Five other career education workshops covering career education concepts and practices, linking agents, program design, program improvement, and school improvement processes are available separately through ERIC--see note.)
