Abstract or Summary
  • This study is focused primarily on the development and evaluation of the SUTOE (Self Understanding Through Occupational Exploration) program in the State of Oregon. It cites the need for a relevant curriculum for junior high school age youth, and reviews the philosophical basis for development of the SUTOE course. The author appraised subjective evaluations of the program in its initial years of operation. For the statistical aspects of the study, an Assessment Form of 128 components was developed and used in both a fall and spring administration in 1968-69. Eighth and ninth grade students in 19 experimental and 6 control groups participated. Each item on the Assessment Form offered a choice of four different responses in which individual students would reflect degrees of knowledge, feelings, attitudes, opinions, or interest on topics relating to self understanding and occupational information. The study tested for change in responses to individual items, and noted direction of change where it was considerable. An analysis of group means was made by use of a t-test, and a test of the Least Significant Difference. The research indicated groups of students enrolled in SUTOE programs responded differently to more of the 128 items in a re-test situation than did Control groups. The differences were statistically significant on more items for SUTOE groups, though not on a majority of them. Among the individual experimental groups, 25 percent of the items had significant changes by one or more groups, while fewer than 2 percent of the items in the control groups changed from fall to spring, The total experimental group versus control group did show 67 percent more change for SUTOE in the spring testing.
