Comparison of Computer-Based Vs. Counselor-Based Occupational Information Systems with Disadvantaged Vocational Students.
Maola, Joseph; Kane, Gary
This research was based upon the rationale that occupational information is an educational essential. The subjects were Occupational Work Experience (OWE) students who were randomly assigned to individual guidance from either a computerized occupational information systems, a counselor-based information system, or to a control group. The groups were post-tested on the Assessment of Career Development (ACD) to determine which group learned the most information. The results demonstrate a hierarchical learning effect--computer group learned more than the counseled group, which learned more than the control group. Only the treatment effects were significantly different between the groups since there was no interaction of IQ and treatment. (Author)
