    • Abstract:
      Although research acknowledges the importance of the formative years of childhood in career development, there is a disconnection between theory and practice in elementary school counseling settings. This study compared a web‐based career guidance intervention with a traditional career guidance intervention by measuring the effects each one has on the career development progression of 4th‐ and 5th‐grade students. Using a pretest−posttest comparison group experimental design, the authors randomly assigned students to either the experimental group (web‐based) or the comparison group (traditional). Results showed significant interactions between group and time for 2 of the 4 subscales examined in the study. Research implications and best practices for infusing career development interventions into the elementary school counseling curriculum are discussed. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
