Computer-Assisted Guidance in New York City High Schools: A Demonstration of Feasibility and Impact on Students.
Heller, Barbara R.; Chitayat, Linda
This report covers three time periods during which students in five New York City high schools had use of a Computer Assisted Guidance (CAG) system. The basic objectives of the CAG project were to demonstrate the feasibility of using an automated system to provide high school students with factual and current information on colleges and careers, to assess the effects of such a system on student choice, and its effects on the allocation of staff time. The project concentrated on students in Grades 11 and 12. This report is divided into the following parts: (1) Background; (2) Project Environment; (3) Evaluation Methods; (4) Project Implementation; (5) Analysis of the GIS Data Files; (6) Student Use of the Computerized System; (7) Outcomes: Analysis of College Applications; (8) Outcomes: Impact of CAG on Student Users; (9) Participants' Reactions and Dissemination Activities; and (10) Summary, Conclusions, and Recommendations.
