Selection of a Computerized Guidance System: A Review of DISCOVER and SIGI.
Samai, Parvine Ghaffari
This paper reviews the process of selection of a computerized guidance system for a multicampus, heterogeneous college. The paper first describes the criteria for selecting a career guidance program appropriate for a particular student population. These selection criteria included content of the program, internal structure, hardware and cost, and training and support. In the next section, the paper describes the main features of the two systems that were considered for implementation: DISCOVER and SIGI (System of Interactive Guidance and Information). Finally, the paper reviews the basis for the final decision (in which DISCOVER was chosen). The system was installed at two of the college campuses in February, 1985, and will be reviewed in Spring, 1986. (KC)
