Alternative Education Models--Interim Findings from the Replication of Career Intern Programs. Education and Training Approaches. Youth Knowledge Development Report 5.1.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Youth Programs.
This volume contains four interim reports of the Career Intern Program (CIP) replication portion of the Alternative Education Demonstration operated by Opportunities Industrialization Centers of America and evaluated by the National Institute of Education. (The CIP is an alternative high school serving dropouts and students at a high risk of dropping out. Under the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act, demonstration projects were implemented at four sites to determine if the CIP is replicable at reasonable cost within a reasonable period of time and if the same success achieved at the developmental site can be achieved.) Each report focuses on one of the four parts of the evaluation design. These are (1) assessment of the process of implementation and adaptation of the original CIP model; (2) analysis of the outcomes on enrollees relative to a randomly selected control group, a comparison group, and national norms; (3) determination of the importance of the various functional components of the CIP; and (4) comparisons with other similar youth programs. A summary report on the original CIP experiment is provided as background. (YLB)
