Case Studies in Practical Career Guidance, Number 5: Computerized Vocational Information System Willowbrook High School, Villa Park, Illinois.
Arutunian, Carol Ann
The Computerized Vocational Information System (CVIS) at Willowbrook High School in Villa Park, Illinois, uses the computer as a tool to help each student explore a wide range of occupations and educational opportunities with some feedback from his own record of ability, achievement, and interest. Computer-based guidance systems are considered a unique approach in the guidance and counseling field. CVIS is of particular interest because it is the most comprehensive system, it has had the largest number of student users, the longest use span, and the largest number of installations. A unique and practical feature is that the system is easily transportable. School districts in all parts of the country have implemented the system and have formed a consortium to assist one another in updating, revising and extending the system as well as validating available evaluation data on CVIS. CVIS not only provides a guidance function, but also includes counselor/administrative functions and computer-assisted instruction, which makes the program cost/effective. Other documents in this series are CG 008 165 through CG 008 168 and CG 008 170 through CG 008 176. (Author)
