AEL Career Decision-Making Program. Worker Trait Group File Content Notebook.
Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.
The Career Information System File is utilized in the organization and management procedures of the Career Information System (CIS) component of the Career Decision-Making (CDM) Program developed by Appalachia Educational Laboratory. (See CE 019 229 for an overview of the total CDM Program.) The twelve career areas and worker trait groups used to organize and index career information resources in CIS are based upon the Area-Group structure of the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles" (DOT), Fourth Edition. This file content notebook is used as a worker trait group (WTG) index to all DOT main titles of materials stored in the WTG vertical file. The notebook has a divider for each of the twelve areas and sixty-six worker trait groups. As material is processed into the system, the DOT main titles can be entered on the preprinted forms behind the appropriate WTG divider. Then a tally mark can be made to show how many pieces of information are in the file for a particular DOT main title. Specific procedures for developing the file content notebook are found in the CIS professional manual, CE 019 233. (BM)
