Abstract:

Over the past few years, academic advising has been receiving increased interest from university staffs. This research examines the impact of providing subjects with academic counselingadvising feedback based on the results of the Colorado Educational Interest Indicator CEII using three different modes. It also examines the impact of these treatments six months after treatment and investigates potential attributes by treatment interactions. Three treatments were developed. The first was a one-on-one individual counseling session. The second was a scripted, audio-taped counseling session. The third treatment consisted of a profile-only method in which subjects reviewed their results without any input from a counselor. The results of the preliminary study indicated that significant differences between treatments existed on measures of information-seeking behavior. The mode in which feedback was provided to subjects in this study appeared to have its greatest impact when given to the freshmen. As time after treatment increased, it appears that the impact of the treatment decreased. These findings have implications for academic advisors and counselors who are interested in providing academic information at a time when it can be of most use to students and at a time when it can have the greatest impact on students.
