The Feasibility of Computer Assisted College Selection as a Guidance Counselling Aid.
Creative Concepts, Inc., Bethesda, MD.
This study analyzed and determined the feasibility of a computerized college selection service for high school students. One thousand seniors were randomly selected from among the public school system in Region III. They completed a questionnaire detailing their qualification for college admission and preference for college characteristics. This information was matched with a computerized college data bank and 10 schools most closely approximating the student's interest and abilities were identified. In addition, each cooperating counselor completed a questionnaire that presented information on the counselor's "level of satisfaction" with each student's college selections as determined by the computer. The study also developed comparative statistics about the preferences and trends of the sample. The appendices include: the guidelines for student selection, the counselor questionnaire, the C.A.M.P.U.S. questionnaire, a sample answer sheet, a list of computerized college selections, and an explanation of the computer print-out.
