Abstract/Description: While the existing literature suggests that expectations plan an important role in counseling and career counseling, previous studies have not systematically assessed the range of expectations for computer-assisted career guidance (CACG) use, not have they directly related obtained results to an existing classification system. The primary purpose of the present study were to determine (1) the types of anticipations clients have for CACG outcomes, (2) whether anticipations are affects by vocational identity, and (3) whether anticipations are affected by decidedness. To achieve these purposes, a variety of instruments, including a demographic form including the Occupational Alternatives Question, the My Vocational Situation, and a free-response, thought listing method (AACO-A), followed by a Likert-type survey of CACG anticipations (AACO-B) were used to collect data. Participants included 55 people who presented themselves at the Curricular-Career Information Service in the Career Center at Florida State University. MANOVAa yielded no significant differences for expectations among clients with high and low identity or high and low decidedness. Spearman rank correlations indicated that regardless of level of vocational identity or career decidedness, clients expect the computers to help increase options, enhance self-knowledge and strengthen occupational knowledge.
