CAAAP (Computer Assisted Academic Advisement and Planning): A Feasibility Study.
Floyd, Jerald D.
The purpose of this study was to develop a computerized program to assist students and their faculty advisors in the initial planning and the on-going evaluation of their academic course of study. The system was conceptualized as an interacting process which would compare the student's proposed academic program with a data bank of information containing all the possible ways in which a student could satisfy the graduation requirements of the university. Based on the experiences of the last three years, Computer Assisted Academic Advisement and Planning is feasible. A pilot sample of 25 student records was processed through the completed system. All aspects (data collection, software procedures, computer operations, output, and student-faculty utilization) were found to be highly satisfactory, including the projected cost which, excluding updating and maintenance, was kept under one dollar per record.
