The major objective of the Information System for Vocational Decisions (ISVD) of Harvard University is to improve vocational decision-making through the use of a computer-based guidance system. The program is so designed that the student can relate knowledge about himself to data about education, training, and work and thereby create a body of information on which he can base his career decision. The entire program links person, computer, and teacher or counselor in such a way that the student can conduct a dialogue with the computer while the counselor assists in interpreting and evaluating the results of the dialogue. This report has six parts: (1) the inception of the information system for vocational decisions, (2) theory and design, (3) work organization including accomplishments and plans, (4) authority and personnel of ISVD, (5) publications of ISVD, and (6) appendices.
