The College Entrance Examination Board's Decision-Making Program is a course of study in the development of decision-making skills, designed for students in junior and senior high schools. It consists of student and leader materials that may serve as a basis for a school guidance program, as a major component for a school-wide decision-making curriculum, or as part of the teaching of such subjects as English, social studies, science, or health education. With student decision-making booklets and detailed leader's guides, the program uses exercises, group activities, simulations, and discussion guides aimed at helping students learn and apply the decision-making process to the personal, educational, and vocational decisions they face in the early secondary school years. The program is intended to enable schools, through their guidance program and curriculum, to meet the educational objectives of: 1) teaching students decision-making skills; 2) giving students practice in using the skills they have been taught; and 3) enabling students to learn more about themselves.
