DEVELOPMENT AND STANDARDIZATION OF A PROJECTIVE OCCUPATIONAL ATTITUDES TEST.
OLSEN, LEROY C.
TO HELP NONCOLLEGE-BOUND YOUTH MAKE SATISFACTORY OCCUPATIONAL DECISIONS, A PROJECTIVE OCCUPATIONAL ATTITUDE TEST WAS DEVELOPED. THE INSTRUMENT CONSISTED OF 10 DRAWINGS DEPICTING SCENES OF UNSKILLED AND SEMISKILLED MALE OCCUPATIONS. THE SCENES PORTRAYED ARTS, TOOLS, MATERIALS, WORKING ENVIRONMENTS, AND INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. THE INSTRUMENT WAS USED FOR INTERVIEWS WITH 400 YOUTHS, 12 TO 18 YEARS OF AGE, INCLUDING JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL ENROLLEES, DROPOUTS, AND YOUTHS ENROLLED IN NEIGHBORHOOD YOUTH CORPS. THE INTERVIEWER SHOWED EACH DRAWING TO THE STUDENTS AND ASKED THEM TO RESPOND. INTERVIEW DATA WERE ANALYZED AND A FOLLOWUP INTERVIEW WAS TO BE CONDUCTED 2 YEARS LATER WHEN THE STUDENTS WOULD BE EMPLOYED. THE INSTRUMENT APPEARED TO PROVIDE A RELIABLE AND FUNCTIONAL INDEX OF OCCUPATIONAL ATTITUDES, BUT THE PRELIMINARY TESTING WAS CARRIED OUT WITH ONLY A LIMITED SAMPLE OF SELECTED PERSONS. FURTHER WORK ESSENTIAL FOR VALIDATION AND STANDARDIZATION WAS IN PROGRESS AT THE TIME OF REPORTING. THIS VOLUME REPRESENTS PART 2 OF THE 13-PART FINAL REPORT ON THE VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT OF WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY. RELATED VOLUMES ARE ED 010 652 THROUGH ED 010 664. (AH)
