PERSONALITY VARIABLES AND CAREER DECISIONS, A PILOT STUDY OF LAW AND SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS.
WALTHER, REGIS H.
PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIOLOGICAL OCCUPATIONAL VARIABLES OF LAW AND SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS WERE IDENTIFIED AND MEASURED. THE JOB ANALYSIS AND INTEREST MEASUREMENT (JAIM), A SELF-DESCRIPTION INVENTORY DEVELOPED FROM STUDIES OF MATURE WORKERS, WAS GIVEN TO 495 FIRST OR SECOND YEAR STUDENTS AT FIVE SCHOOLS OF SOCIAL WORK AND 244 FIRST YEAR OR GRADUATE LAW STUDENTS AT GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY. THE LAW STUDENTS ALSO TOOK THE LAW STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRE WHICH MEASURED STUDENT VALUES, ORIENTATIONS, PREFERENCES, AND ROLE CONCEPTS. THE JAIM COULD BE USED TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN LAW AND SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS, AMONG SUBSPECIALTIES AND SCHOOLS, AND COULD ALSO MEASURE CHANGE DURING AN ACADEMIC YEAR. IT ALSO CORRELATED SIGNIFICANTLY WITH SCHOOL PERFORMANCE CRITERIA SUCH AS SCHOOL GRADES AND FIELD RATINGS. RESPONSES TO THE LAW STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRE ARE APPENDED. A STUDY OF THE CORRELATIONS BETWEEN JAIM AND LAW SCHOOL ADMISSION TEST SCORES AND BETWEEN JAIM AND 1965-66 ACADEMIC GRADES FOR THE LAW STUDENT SAMPLE IS PLANNED. (SK)
