1. -2647-8921. Confidence in career decision-making upon first destination employment post graduation: A study of Texas Tech University seniors and graduate students.

Degree: PhD, Family and Consumer Sciences Education, 2016, Texas Tech University

In today’s collegiate environment, a growing concern is apparent in regard to college graduates and their confidence in decision-making upon post-graduation employment. As students graduate college and begin seeking full-time employment, there are many factors that are taken into consideration. Are they ready to self-assess, generate options, seek information, and ultimately generate a confident career decision? The purpose of this study was to compare the relationships between confidence in their career decision-making of first destination employment under four conditions, (a) after taking StrengthsFinder ™ and receiving one-on-one person-centered coaching, (b) taking StrengthsFinder™ and not receiving one-on-one person-centered coaching, (c) not taking StrengthsFinder™ and receiving one-on-one person-centered coaching, or (d) not taking StrengthsFinder or receiving one-on-one person centered coaching. This study investigated the decision-making processes of college students graduating and obtaining their first full-time, or part-time position. Students who chose to join the military or volunteer on a full-time basis were also included in the study. University administrators, faculty, career services professionals, employment recruiters, parents, and graduating students all have a vested interest in the futures of graduating students seeking gainful employment upon graduation. With the effective implementation of person-centered career coaching and use of the StrengthsFinder™ assessment, students have the opportunity to be more confident in the career decision-making process. This study has important implications for Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS). FCS professionals have been addressing through research and professional development the relationship between work and wellbeing. Furthermore, there is an increased focus on career readiness in the secondary FCS curriculum. Advisors/Committee Members: Allison, Barbara N (committee member), Godfrey, Roxie V (committee member), Hendricks, Bret (committee member), Alexander, Karen L (Committee Chair).

2. Shepherd, Nancy. Student and teacher outcomes of a family and consumer science experiential curriculum delivered in a traveling trunk: A mixed methods study.

Degree: 2013, Texas Tech University

Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Education prepares students for family life, work life and learning through real-life experiences, while providing possibilities to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors to be successful in a changing, competitive, global environment (Redick, 1995). The purpose of this study was to examine if experiential curriculum delivered in a traveling trunk about a social issue changed student learning when experienced teachers facilitate learning. The embedded mixed method study collected quantitative and qualitative data in the form of pre/post testing to measure student learning. The trunk delivery method was used as the intervention to distinguish if improvements in the learning are dependent on the delivery method. The learning experience was explored with observations and teacher interviews to look at the relationships between teacher and student interactions with the trunk curriculum, teacher experience and student learning. This study showed learning gains occurred when experiential curriculum focused on global hunger was facilitated by experienced teachers, and delivered in a traveling trunk. The study conducted in three schools in West Texas in six FCS classrooms, (N=58) showed that active learning about social issues engages students. Paired t-tests revealed a significant difference in learning for the experimental group, (n=34) at the p < .05 level when comparing their answers on the pre-test about hunger with their answers on the posttest following the curriculum experience. Qualitative findings suggest an enriched learning experience with benefits including student interest and curiosity, prepackaged curricula, development of process skills, and the topic of a social issue. Advisors/Committee Members: Alexander, Karen L. (Committee Chair), Couch, Sue (committee member), Godfrey, Roxie (committee member), Siwatu, Kamau O. (committee member).
