The 10 papers in this report, selected from a series of 4 workshops, concern the planning of career and vocational education programs. The lead paper, by Corine Radice, gives the reader a perspective of a person working in a public high school trying to find help for students planning career decisions. The lead paper is followed by another on the social and personal perspectives of success in America by Donald Super and Albert Thompson. The third paper peruses the research on career decisionmaking, while Albert Thompson's paper concerns the occupational survival skills in the affective domain which employers expect of their employees. This paper is followed by Charles Doty's specific guidelines for writing objectives based on these employer expectations. In the next report, Elaine Douma and Thomas Gambino identify goals and behavioral indicators of students in grades K-14. Analyzing a job and developing a curriculum is the subject of the next paper by Robert Newman, while the following report by Victor Morella explains the monitoring system of students' progress in vocational classes in his school district. The last two papers concern evaluation. Raymond Wasdyke's paper explains the basic principle of performance testing, while Charles Doty and Rae Weissman suggest resources available for designing longitudinal evaluation studies. The last section of this report is a bibliography of sources concerning career education, career decision making, and related information. An addendum to the report is a draft of a paper on career education and quality circles by Thomas W. Gambino. (KC)
