Abstract/Description: Experience has shown that implementation problems limit the effectiveness of computer-assisted career guidance (CACG) systems. Implementation problems generally involve planning, integration of CACG systems within career services, training, and staff anxiety and resistance. While a considerable amount of research has been conducted on the process of outcomes of CACG system implementation. The purpose of this evaluation is to provide preliminary evaluation data on the implementation of Florida Choice in public high schools. The sample of schools included in this study was representative of high schools in Florida in terms of school size (small, medium, and large) and school location (urban and rural). All participating schools had been using Florida Choice for at least two years. A total of seventeen Florida high schools, representing both rural and urban geographical areas participated in this study. The results of this study were consistent with implementation problems that have been noted in the literature. Implementation factors, such as enablers, barriers, and additional resources needed, appeared to be consistent across schools. Irrespective of being from a small, medium, or large school, staff perceived training, collaboration, and resources as key implementation issues. Recommendations for improving implementation of Florida Choices are presented.
