Abstract : The report provides a technical analysis and review of a computerized academic counseling system (CACS) designed and constructed to assist counselors in guiding undergraduate college students toward the selection of optimal academic majors. Problem review and definition, system analysis, design rationale, methodological approach, measurement specifications, data base compilation, mathematical modeling, statistical results, and validation tests are presented in various degrees of detail. Counseling application directions, capabilities, and potential are described. Computerized academic counseling is discussed in the context of career success likelihood. Reccomendations for extending the approach to include additional aspects of career guidance are made. (Modified author abstract)
