RE-ANALYSIS OF STRONG'S INTEREST DATA FROM MEDICAL SPECIALISTS.
CAMPBELL, DAVID P.
A RETESTING WAS MADE OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MEASURED INTERESTS AND THE SELECTION OF A MEDICAL SPECIALTY. SPECIFICALLY, THE RESEARCH REPORTED HERE ATTEMPTED TO DETERMINE WHY THE STRONG VOCATIONAL INTEREST BLANK (SVIB) AND THE MEDICAL SPECIALIST PREFERENCE BLANK (MSPB) SCALES FAIL TO PREDICT EVENTUAL MEDICAL SPECIALTY. ALL OF THE ANALYSES OF AN EARLIER STUDY (STRONG AND TUCKER, 1952) WERE REDONE. ONE CONCLUSION WAS FOUND TO BE IDENTICAL TO AN ORIGINAL STRONG-TUCKER FINDING, NAMELY, THAT THE SCALES COULD NOT BE USED TO PREDICT EVENTUAL MEDICAL SPECIALTY. WHILE THE MEDICAL SPECIALIST SCALE WAS FOUND TO BE VALID AMONG SPECIALISTS WHO HAD ALREADY CHOSEN A CAREER, IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT THE SCALE NOT BE USED FOR COUNSELING. (GD)
