The Development and Evaluation of a Pilot Computer-Assisted Occupational Guidance Program (Project No. 16033, 17033, 18033) Final Report and Appendixes A-E.
Impellitteri, Joseph T.
The purpose of this system is three-fold: (1) to provide an easily updated individualized occupational information retrieval system, (2) to develop a process whereby youth can develop an individualized framework of the occupational structures, and (3) to provide an experience fo r youth to acquire operational opportunities by simulated practice. When a student working at a computer terminal requests information on a specific occupation, four operations are activated in the following order: (1) Discrepancies which may exis t between the student's ability-preference profile and the requirements for the particular occupation are typed out, (2) A 2-minute taped interview with a worker in the occupation is played, (3) An image is projected on the slide projector screen depicting the worker undertaking four typical tasks in the occupation, and (4) A 150- to 200-word description of the occupation is typed out for the student to read and to keep for later use. Appendixes include computer printouts of job descriptions for 80 occupations, types of student preference items, and taped interviews with workers. Also included are a bibliography of sources of occupational information, selected dissemination papers, and instruments developed during the course of the project. (CH)
