The research, based on 49 doctoral dissertations concerned with or related to career education, presents tabulated and narrative summaries on their areas of emphasis, research methodology, implementation, domains, and significance. Recommendations for further research are listed in the 31-page presentation. The 160-page appendix contains abstracts of the dissertations studied. Each abstract provides a cover sheet listing author, title, sponsoring institution, date of approval, chairman of dissertation committee, and availability data; and provide a check list specifying major and minor emphases in the following areas: relation to the Federal definition of career education (seven categories), focus on a specific stage of career development (five categories), method of research (six categories), type of study related to implementation (three categories), domain (four categories), and researcher's and reviewer's judgments on significance of research (six categories). Each abstract also discusses in detail the research problem, the methods and procedures, and the major findings. The appendix also lists eight career education dissertations by EPDA Fellows unavailable for inclusion in the study and a list of 84 dissertations by EPDA Fellows which did not pertain to career education. Finally the document lists EPDA project directors by State. (JR)
