DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERISED CAREER GUIDANCE INFORMATION SYSTEM

DESIGN AND
IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERISED CAREER GUIDANCE INFORMATION SYSTEM
ABSTRACT
Computers
are known for their wide range of uses especially in scientific and
mathematical fields.  However little or no thought has been given to
designing a complete career guidance information system.  
This system
is designed in order to implement intelligence test on a computer system.
 It tries as much as possible to incorporate the important aspect of
intelligence on a wide scale.  It is designed to test intelligence of
secondary school leavers using the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE)
and the University Matriculation Examination (UME) as a standardized sample,
and as such the Psychological implication of such a design is very important.
The design
of the system is quite simple and easily understood.  Its flexibility
makes it amenable for future changes and amendment to either incorporate other
aspects of intelligence or to be designed for any other school age or class.
The question
of the intelligence test are programmed and visually displayed on the system
screen in an interactive form. The student answers the question on the computer
system.
The results
obtained from the test give an estimate on user (student) intelligence quotient
(IQ).  This is equally displayed and tells the student in what category
he/she falls within.  The result of the test is also displayed of the end
of the test which goes a long way to lesson the fears of students that they
were marked down in the examination.
