The Computerized Educational Guidance System. VOCGUYD Manual.
Cassel, Russell N.
The Computerized Vocational Guidance System (VOCGUYD) is designed primarily to foster career maturity and to assist individuals in their career planning. To foster career maturity a wide variety of search and screening criteria that are critical to job success are introduced, and which serve as the basis for career guidance purposes. The Career Success Index (CSI) provided by the computer, and which is arrived at through computer interrogation is the most important aspect of VOCGUYD. The CSI reveals the degree of agreement between one's interests, special aptitudes, work values, and school success in comparison to requirements attributed to success for a specific job area. Hopefully, a participant should identify from three to five job career areas with a CSI of Average or better, and for which more concentrated study would be made under the supervision of a Guidance Counselor. If the CSI is high it means the individual possesses the necessary conditions for job success. (Author)
