The ABC's of Using the Arkansas Occupational and Educational Information System in the Adult Education Classroom. A Guidance Manual for Adult Education Teachers.
Dole, Marjorie B.
This guidance manual for adult education teachers contains materials for and information on the use of the Arkansas Occupational and Educational Information System (AOEIS) with adult education students. Section A reproduces in its entirety the "AOEIS Structured Search Guide." This guide, the first step in using AOEIS, leads the student through a structured search to identify interests and preferences that affect career choice. On the right hand page is a reprint from the guide; on the facing page are suggestions to assist the teacher in interpreting the material for the students. Section B briefly discusses materials used in steps 2 and 3 of the AOEIS: a manual or computer search to obtain a list of relevant occupations; and an exploration of the AOEIS Data Files through a microfiche reader or viewer to obtain specific information about occupations. Samples of structured search scan sheets are provided. Other contents include a glossary of terms, information on obtaining AOEIS materials, and a listing of resource persons. Section C contains tips for adult education teachers, a step-by-step procedure for using AOEIS in an adult education classroom, and an annotated list of related vocational guidance materials. Two articles about career information delivery systems are appended. (YLB)
