Assessing Effectiveness of DISCOVER in a Small Campus Career Development Program.
Campbell, Robert B.
To test the effectiveness of the DISCOVER computer-based career development system, 46 college students completed the Survey of Career Development, the Information-Seeking Behavior Log, and the Self-Assessment of Confidence and Progress in Educational/Career Planning. The instruments were administered as pre- and post-treatment indicators to two treatment groups and a control group. One treatment group used the DISCOVER system with no additional treatment; the second group participated in a 5-week Career Exploration Workshop and used DISCOVER in conjunction with the workshop. Results showed that participants in the two treatment groups compared to the no-treatment control group improved significantly on seven of nine scores. DISCOVER seems to be effective in assisting students in their career planning, and to be a positive supplement to existing career development programming. (Author/LLL)
