THE VALIDATION OF AN AUTOMATED COUNSELING SYSTEM.
FRIESEN, DELOSS D.
THE VALIDITY OF A COMPUTER BASED COUNSELING SYSTEM WAS TESTED BY COMPARISON OF ITS EFFECTIVENESS WITH THAT OF TWO COUNSELORS IN--(1) PRE- AND POST-INTERVIEW PUPIL APPRAISAL, (2) STUDENT EDUCATIONAL DECISIONS, AND (3) THE COMPLETENESS OF EDUCATIONAL PLANS. INTERVIEWED BY A MODEL COUNSELOR AND THE COUNSELING SYSTEM WERE 20 NINTH-GRADERS. AN EQUAL NUMBER OF STUDENTS WERE INTERVIEWED BY A SECOND COUNSELOR AND THE COUNSELING SYSTEM. INTERVIEW RESULTS, STUDENTS' SEX, SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ABILITY TEST SCORES, SOCIOECONOMIC LEVEL, AND FINAL TENTH GRADE PLANS WERE COLLECTED FOR ANALYSIS. DATA ANALYSIS METHODS ARE DISCUSSED. RESULTS INDICATE THAT--(1) THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPOSITE COUNSELING MODEL WHICH WOULD INCORPORATE THE BEST FEATURES OF SEVERAL COUNSELORS IS POSSIBLE, (2) THE CURRENT AUTOMATED COUNSELING SYSTEM, WITH THE MODIFICATIONS DISCUSSED, HAS VALUE AS A COMPUTER-BASED PUPIL INFORMATION SYSTEM AND IS USEFUL AS AN EDUCATIONAL PLANNING AID IN CONJUNCTION WITH A COUNSELOR, AND (3) MOST STUDENTS WOULD VOLUNTARILY USE THE AUTOMATED COUNSELING SYSTEM IF IT WERE IMPLEMENTED INTO A SCHOOL SYSTEM.
