Guidelines for the Use of Computer-Based Career Information and Guidance Systems.
Caulum, David, Ed.; Lambert, Roger, Ed.
This document presents guidelines developed by the Association of Computer-Based Systems for Career Information (ACSCI) for integrating computer-based career information systems into the larger guidance or career development program. This guide is intended for counselors and others who assist students and clients at a user site. For purposes of the guidelines, user site personnel are grouped into three categories by their required level of knowledge about the system: the counseling and information staff need the most knowledge; followed by incidental staff users; and finally by administrators, students, and clients. It is recommended that these guidelines be used to: (1) facilitate a computer-based system's implementation and use; (2) aid in assessing system effectiveness; and (3) assure that resources devoted to the system are invested under guidelines that insure their most efficient and effective use. The guidelines are organized into seven main headings with three to six guidelines under each heading. The categories include theory and practice, process, user needs, system site management, physical environment, personnel, and evaluation. Most guidelines are followed by questions designed to test the extent to which those guidelines are being observed. (NRB)
