Can A Machine Admit An Applicant to Continuing Education? Information System for Vocational Decisions. Project Report Number 19.
Tiedeman, David V.
An Admissions Machine is defined as a sub-set of procedures in a Career Machine which an applicant and an admissions officer can use collaboratively in an interactive interrogation and report system when the applicant expects fair treatment from the admissions officer and the admissions officer trusts the judgment of the applicant concerning the appropriateness of the institution for him. The specification of an Admissions Machine which has the same purpose for admission to continuing education as does testing but at the same time becomes a new means for those same ends and places new perspective on tests as a means for admission to continuing education. The faults of testing are examined in that perspective. (Author/EK)
