|What MCP Does:
MCP is an online interactive career exploration
and planning system for use by students. Some of the most important
components are outlined below:
Exploration: The MCP system is based on the premise
that all individuals are multidimensional, each with their own
unique package of occupational interests, values, skills, educational
aspirations, and personality. Our battery of assessments taps
each of these resources to help the individual gain a better
understanding of themselves, and relates each of them to a unique
set of occupations. Students can also research occupations on
their own by browsing any of the 1100 careers in the program.
As an added bonus, students can search for careers by combining
the results of multiple (2 or more) assessments. At any point,
the student can save a career for future reference.
and School Search: Basic Search is provided using name
of school. Students can also browse an alphabetic list. Advanced
search features include location (state, region, and degree
of urbanization), type of school (certificate/community college/4-year
institution, public/private, and religious affiliation), costs,
enrollments, majors, athletics, and extracurricular activities.
Detailed information is provided about all schools. Students
have the capability of saving schools for future reference.
Saved Schools and Occupations: Students can review,
edit, and insert their own comments into their pool of saved
information. Careers can be ranked based on their overall appeal,
and schools can be organized into the categories of "reach",
"match", and "safety".
(Student Reports): The student builds a personalized
portfolio which summarizes their assessments, their saved schools
