The Computerized Educational Guidance System. EDGUYD Manual.
Cassel, Russell N.
The Computerized Educational Guidance System (EDGUYD) permits one to narrow post high school educational planning where consideration is given to all 1,448 4-year colleges and universities in the United States. This, to be sure, is a feat no human counselor is capable of without a computer. The Educational Success Index (ESI) is the means used by EDGUYD to narrow post high educational choices from the many (1,448) to a few for more intensive study under Guidance Counselor. It does this through a computer-based interrogation of the individual once a trial school is identified. The ESI reveals the degree of agreement between interests and desires of the individual and the specific requirements of school identified. Hopefully, three or four schools would be identified with ESIs of average or better for more intensive study. (Author)
