A Demonstration of A Regional Career Information Center; The View System. A Summary of Research Results 1967-68.
Whitfield, Edwin A.; Glaeser, George A.
The demonstration phase of Project VIEW (Vital Information for Education and Work) was designed to enable school counselors and administrators to familiarize themselves with the operation of the Regional Career Information System. VIEW provides information on 200 occupations requiring less than a baccalaureate degree. Objectives of the study were: (1) to provide occupational information on local job opportunities, (2) to show how students can utilize information, (3) to illustrate how one system can meet the needs of rural and urban youth, (4) to encourage students to discuss career information at home, (5) to demonstrate a process by which counselors can use information to aid noncollege bound youth, (6) to disseminate information detailing the services and results of this project, and (7) to demonstrate the services of this system to other areas. Data was obtained from three experimental and three control groups. Conclusions indicate that: (1) providing good information does not assure its effective use by counselors and staff, (2) the approach, utilized by this system, to information dissemination is well liked by students, and (3) parents play a major role in students' educational and career planning. This project was founded under provisions of Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (IM)
