Handbook of Standards for Computer-Based Career Information Systems.
Association of Computer-Based Systems for Career Information, Eugene, OR. Clearinghouse.
This document presents standards for computer-based career information systems developed by the Association of Computer-Based Systems for Career Information (ACSCI). The adoption of ACSCI standards constitutes a voluntary means for organizations to declare that they subscribe to certain quality measures. These standards can be used to: (1) foster excellence through the development of criteria and guidelines for assessing effectiveness; (2) encourage improvement of effectiveness through self-study; (3) assure the users and the public that members have well-defined and appropriate objectives and criteria by which to be judged, and an organization to meet these standards; (4) provide assistance to developing systems; and (5) protect systems against factors harmful to effectiveness. A total of 51 standards are listed and briefly discussed in the six categories of organization, information development, marketing and user services, delivery systems, evaluation, and system finance. Each standard is numbered. A yes/no membership checklist of questions for organizations seeking eligibility in ACSCI is given and purposes and membership benefits of the association are listed. (ABL)
