The authors conclude that positive outcomes are documented for all major guidance strategies across most learning outcome categories. When properly concerted, guidance can have a cumulative effect; a long-term, multi-method approach is thus indicated, providing that it is alert to individual needs. They believe there is an over-reliance on US evidence and hence on US approaches to the measurement of learning outcomes. There is a need for evidence linking learning outcomes to career and educational outcomes.
