The YES System: Why? What? How? A Counseling Advising System.
Wertheim, Judith B.
A project devised a self-instructional counseling/advising system for adults that relates activities in Adult Basic Education programs with activities in Occupational Development Centers. To identify client and student needs in the areas of occupational choice and job readiness skills, the Your Employment Search (YES) inventory was developed in long and short forms. Materials appropriate to meet these needs were then identified. Criteria for suitability included being below the sixth grade reading level, having information appropriate to a general audience, being of low cost, and being less than 10 years old. Materials were included in the YES Needle-Sort Deck. (Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the report, include the YES Inventory, long and short forms; and directions for using the YES System including instructions for administration, YES Inventory, and listing of titles of self-instructional materials in the YES System.)
