Abstract

The purpose of the researcher was to evaluate the relative effectiveness of the infusion of career education into the regular classroom and its effect on the secondary student's career maturity. The independent variables were gender, grade level, grade point average, participation in school activities and work experience. The dependent variable in all the null hypotheses was the Crites' Career Maturity Inventory (Attitude Scale). The total sample was 32 for the experimental group and 21 for the control group. Six null hypotheses were tested. One-way analysis of covariance was employed to test the null hypotheses. There were no differences between the adjusted post mean career maturity scores (Pre-scores covariate measures) in any of the variables used: therefore, all null hypotheses were retained. The results of the present study appeared to support the following generalizations: 1. Participation in career awareness activities was not associated with career maturity. 2. Gender was not associated with career maturity. 3. Grade Level was not associated with career maturity. 4. Grade point average was not associated with career maturity. 5. Level of involvement in school activities was not associated with career maturity. 6. Working was not associated with career maturity.
