The Development and Evaluation of an Interactive Computer System for Use in Counselor Education. Final Report.
Pepyne, Edward W.
Within the context of programmatic research and an empirical systems approach, an interactive computer system was designed for use in counselor education and assessment. This report first describes the identification of several discrete counseling styles and the development of the Counselor Repertoire Developments System (CRD) to analyze the counseling task, and then concentrates on the design, development, and evaluation of an integrated subsystem of CRD--the Sequential Automated Monitoring of Counselor Repertoire Development (SAMOCORD). A brief overview of requirements for SAMOCORD implementation is provided. The basic objectives of the project are described: the development of a testing program called Program Self-Assessment; the development of a counseling simulation program called Program Counseling Exercises; the development of an interactive process analysis program called Program Interview Analysis; and the development of a computer program for use on remote terminals to provide a linguistic analysis of interview content called Program Interview Content Analysis. The remainder of the report describes the developmental procedures, evaluative activities, and implications for counseling curriculum development and research. (Author/SH)
