In 1974, the College Board in Puerto Rico initiated a program on educational counseling for high school-bound students. The program was designed to help students define their educational goals and career interests before entering the ninth grade where they would be required to make specific curriculum choices. The program calls for the administration of four measurement instruments; (1) a verbal test; (2) a mathematics and problem solving test; (3) an analogy test; and (4) a questionnaire on personal habits and interests including personal values, study habits, curriculum interests, and work goals. Test data would then be analyzed to provide students information for making better educational decisions. This Spanish language guide describes the program, provides suggestions to teachers and couselors, outlines the basic concepts of the program, and describes possible teaching methods. Appendices consist of the four measurement instruments used by this program. (EGS)
