Career Education Through an Informational Retrieval System by Ten Junior and Senior High Schools in Central Virginia.
Houff, David E.; Helwig, Carl
The Computer-Assisted Career Information System (CACIS) is designed to assist high school pupils in planning toward a meaningful career. The system contains a data bank on each individual pupil including biographical data and information on the job market. The evaluation scheme in this report, the second of a three-year evaluation, stresses evaluation of performance by both counselors and pupils, and evaluation of attitude by the pupils. The Phase II evaluation scheme was designed to emphasize multivariate explanations and techniques. The research design involved the selection of participating as well as non-participating schools paired by grade with analyses conducted across those grades totally, as well as by grade. The measure selected for the career education treatment effects by the counselors and the CACIS was the standardized Career Maturity Inventory, which consisted of an Attitude Scale and a Competence Test. The other measures employed were Osgood's semantic differential factors of evaluative, potency, oriented-activity, and receptivity. Results are displayed in a series of tables. (VT)
