Humanizing Education Through Guidance Counseling.
Accola, W. V.
A computerized information retrieval system has been designed to support the secondary school counseling effort. The system, entitled Total Guidance Information Support System (TGISS), runs on an IBM System/360 Model 65 facility and uses the IBM 2848 Display Control Unit. The software consists of an interactive communications program developed in the Filling and Source Data Entry Techniques for Easier Retrieval (FASTER) macro language, along with supporting file generation and maintenance programs. After entering a security password, the counselor keys one of 14 inquiries into an IBM 2260 Display Station; the response is a formatted report displayed on a cathode ray tube. In addition to a student psychograph, information may be retrieved regarding the student's personal background, his transcript and grade point average, current schedule, standardized test scores, interests, health record, and work experience.
