Genesee Intermediate School District, Flint, MI. Vocational Education and Career Development Services.
To serve career development needs of secondary, postsecondary, and handicapped/disadvantaged students and adults, Project COMPASS (Center for Occupational Management, Placement, and Systematic Services) developed a comprehensive computer-assisted guidance, counseling, placement, and follow-through program. Project activities revolved around use of the Educational and Career Exploration System (ECES), an interactional career guidance system, in a centralized career planning center. Following a literature review, project activities were conducted in relationship to objectives in three categories: (1) user, including career choice, placement, training, and counseling; (2) support, including monitor and staff training, inservice teacher workshops, and parent training; and (3) management, including a management system, and result, product, and outcome dissemination. (Appendixes comprising most of the report contain materials used: "Day-on-the-Job" application and materials, midlife career change workshop workbook and evaluation, career development data placement users' manual for the Macomb Area Placement Project (MAPP) system and field test outcomes, ECES student manual availability, career development and employability skills modules, ECES monitor training materials, placement newsletter, ECES brochure, management system, and newsletter articles.)
