Welcome to the CAIA website! We are pleased to present our prototype of this virtual college counselor for high school students in low income areas of the United States. You'll find a lot of information on this website, so here is a quick description of what you'll find at each of the links above:

  • CAIA Demo - This part of the site will introduce you to the interface we have developed for CAIA, show you what the profile of one of our target learners will look like, and finally give you a chance to see what CAIA can do with an interactive demo!
  • Video Prototype - Since the prototype we have in the demo section is not fully functional, we have produced a short video to give you a better idea of what it will really be like to use our final product.
  • For Parents - CAIA is geared specifically toward helping students with the college application process, but we have put together this collection of FAQs and resources for parents.
  • Project Background - This link will open a new window and take you to the website we created to describe the background research, learning theories and design principles that guided the development of CAIA.
