DISCOVER: A Computerized Careers Curriculum.
Rayman, Jack R.
Liberal arts campuses are feeling a need to provide better career education services for their undergraduate students. The DISCOVER Foundation has developed a comprehensive computerized career guidance system for grades 7 through 12 which not only provides career information, but also performs such tasks as teaching students decision-making skills and helping them to clarify their values. This system, which is being adapted for a college level computerized careers course, provides guidance through 12 50-minute modules of interactive content. Some tools and techniques developed by other guidance professionals, e.g., Holland's Self-Directed Search, have been incorporated in the System with permission, and provisions have been made to accommodate individual differences. Each of the DISCOVER system modules is described. (CMV)
