Career Planning Support System. Final Report.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
The Career Planning Support System (CPSS) is a career guidance mechanism designed to provide the organizational structure and detailed procedural steps required to install or improve a schoolwide career development program. Rather than prescribing the specific career development activities schools should use, CPSS provides a means for schools to focus their career development program on the unique needs of their own students and within the bounds of their own resources. A project was undertaken to disseminate information about CPSS across the country and to assist interested schools in adopting it. During the course of the project materials for use in adoption decisions, training instruction, and program management and evaluation were developed. Adoption agreements were negotiated with State facilitator grantees and educational service providers, and technical assistance and staff training were provided to potential adopters. The quality and effectiveness of the CPSS adoptions were monitored and evaluated, and a system to identify and train certified trainers was implemented. (Attachments to this report include the executive summary of a National evaluation study of CPSS, a CPSS decision guide, informational and promotional material on CPSS, a CPSS awareness workshop and training plan, sample adoption agreement and reporting forms, awareness materials and awareness session questionnaires, a CPSS certified training agreement, and an aggregate data section.)
