Summary

The purpose of this discussion is to acquaint pupil personnel workers with some of the applications of computer based information processing systems for pupil services and also to consider some of the legal and ethical concerns relative to data processing in counseling and guidance. Some of the uses discussed are: (1) scheduling; (2) student record systems; (3) research; (4) retrieval; and (5) simulation. Specific uses relative to each of the above are presented. Problems relevant to computer usage include: (1) who should decide what information should be placed in a computer student file; (2) incorrect information or machine error; and lack of currency in computer information. Solutions to these problems may be use of: (1) a staff team to decide what information goes into a students file; (2) a yearly check of each file for accuracy; and (3) schools should participate as part of a shared data bank in order to safeguard confidentiality.
