Summary

A team of evaluators assessed the implementation of the Career Education Incentive Act in Tennessee during the period from the fall of 1979 through January 1981. Using a series of standardized reporting forms as well as telephone and personal interviews with local project directors, evaluators collected data pertaining to 20 local projects carried out in 1979-80 and 17 local projects conducted in 1980-81. They found that a majority of the 1980-81 local career education projects accomplished most of the objectives specified in Tennessee's state plan for career education. Included among the accomplishments were the following: conduct of needs assessments to formulate local project objectives, purchase of instructional and career guidance materials, development of plans to reduce bias/stereotyping, establishment of resource centers and advisory councils, and collaboration with community organizations. Only in the areas of advisory council meetings and staff awareness sessions did achievement of criterion-referenced objectives fall short of predicted levels. Factors associated with project success and failure were isolated. Among factors contributing to project failure were absence of a project director, failure to conduct needs assessments and evaluations, and insufficient funding. Factors linked to project success included staff development activities, community participation, and early commitment of local funds. (MN)
