Navy Career Education Diffusion Project: State of Oregon. Final Report.
McDermott, Michael M.
The final report describes a project to research, develop, and field test Navy occupational information for inclusion into the Oregon Career Information System (CIS), a computer-assisted career education program. Five sections include: (1) introductory information; (2) a discussion of the preparation of Navy occupational information and reviewing the Oregon CIS; (3) the results of the Oregon field test, with a reproduction of the Oregon CIS report to Operations Research, Inc. (ORI); (4) a review of three other career information systems and their requirements (Computerized Vocational Information System (CVIS), System of Interactive Guidance and Information (SIGI), and Vocational Information through Computer Systems (VICS); and (5) project results and recommendations for improving and expanding the use of Navy occupational information developed. A project summary is included. Appended material includes: a listing of all CIS users in Oregon; representative descriptions of Navy occupations (32 pages) taken from "Work in the Navy--A Description of Navy Officer and Enlisted Occupations," which was incorporated into the Oregon CIS. It is stated that while the occupational information is current and factual, many users feel that it better suits the needs of the military-oriented student than the student exploring careers generally.
