One of seven career education programs chosen for nationwide dissemination by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's Joint Dissemination Review Panel (JDRP), Project CERES (Career Education Responsive to Every Student) is being conducted for grades K-6 with planned expansion to grades 7-12. For the years 1972-76, it received funding from federal grants. In order to infuse career education concepts into the elementary and secondary curriculum and to develop an articulated curriculum that would provide for student attainment of career education goals, project staff developed a Career Education Matrix to establish instructional goals, student objectives, and staff responsibilities. Ten areas of career education are covered by the Matrix: career awareness, self awareness, career preparation, educational awareness, career planning and decision making, attitude development, economic awareness, career orientation, consumer competencies, and career exploration. To evaluate the project's effectiveness, the Primary and Intermediate Career Objectives Tests were administered in 1973-74 to sixteen elementary classes evenly divided between treatment and control groups. Based on the significantly higher scores of the treatment groups, it was concluded that the project produced educationally meaningful results in career education. (The review process that this and the other six projects underwent prior to JDRP submission and approval is described in CE 020 214-215.) (ELG)
