A Report on Project CVIS (Computerized Vocational Information System).
Willowbrook High School, Villa Park, IL. Computerized Vocational Information System Project.
The Computerized Vocational Information System (CVIS) team, has designed a system utilizing a computer as a tool to help students explore occupations in the light of their own student records. This system aims at teaching a decision-making process in a way that interests students and allows counselors more time for counseling functions. The project was developed in five phases. Using Poe's two-dimensional classification, occupations were divided into six levels by amount of training and responsibility required. These six levels were then divided into eight categories of interest. Student records in computer storage include cumulative class rank, composite score on battery of tests, and interest inventory scores. Students use the system voluntarily and during a sophomore vocational unit. Each counselor also has a display terminal in his office. Student attitude is highly positive. Appended is the script, beginning list of occupations, sample brief, student-record displays, and an evaluation questionnaire. (KP)
