Summary

The specific objectives of the project were to (1) computerize previously developed occupational information for on-line delivery capabilities as well as for development of computer output microfiche, (2) develop manual pinsorts to aid secondary and postsecondary students in exploring occupational information, (3) develop special materials for blind students and for slow learners, (4) develop user guides on use of the various delivery systems, and (5) provide cost data on the different systems. An updated version of Tennessee's occupational information was computerized to provide on-line teletype terminal access to the information. Direct copy microfiche was developed from the printed data base. Manual career exploratory pinsorts for accessing the junior high occupational information as well as the secondary-postsecondary version of the computerized information were developed. In addition, braille and audio tape materials were developed for use by blind students and filmstrips with audio tape narrations were developed for use by slow learners. User guides were developed for use by students, parents, teachers, counselors, and librarians on the use of each of the different types of delivery systems. Evaluation data collected from students, parents, teachers, counselors, and librarians revealed all the occupational information delivery systems were accepted favorably. Suggestions were received from users for making minor revisions in each delivery system to improve its use. This report includes a detailed description of the project's methodology, evaluation results, and summary of findings. (HD)
