The Development and Implementation of an Integrated Career Education and Placement Program For the Washington State System of Community Colleges.
Marble, James E.; And Others
The community colleges in the state of Washington are committed to a Six Year Plan to provide computing and information systems support to all students. The system is intended to make available a broad range of career placement information to assist decision-making, thereby humanizing education by insuring fewer misguided students, counselors and teachers. The pilot phase of a program, known as the Integrated Career Education and Placement Program (ICEPP), seeks to implement these goals. It rests on four linear segments of career development: exploration, preparation, specialization, and continuing education/employment. The system uses the IBM 360 Model 30 DOS System with ten files containing data on students, institutions, employment forecasts, training programs, financial aids, jobs available, job descriptions, job titles, community resources and follow-up material. The second phase of the ICEPP will expand the pilot version statewide; regional networks of four to six institutions will be formed and the batch processing mode of the first phase will be replaced by an interactive information processing system environment allowing the standard terminal applications of message switching, broadcasting, inquiry, data collection, conversational data entry, and order entry.
