DEVELOPMENT OF A JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL INSTRUMENT FOR APPRAISING SOCIAL READINESS FOR EMPLOYMENT.
BATES, ZELPHA; TODD, VIVIAN EDMISTON
OUT OF INTERVIEW DATA AND A BUREAU OF STANDARDS BOOKLET, TWO APPRAISAL DEVICES "WHERE IS IT DONE" AND "WHAT TO DO" WERE DEVELOPED TO MEASURE SOCIAL READINESS FOR EMPLOYMENT. THE DEVICES ARE DIRECT MEANS FOR A STUDENT TO RECORD HIS THOUGHTS ABOUT WORK AND SCHOOL SITUATIONS SO THAT HE AND OTHERS CAN OBSERVE THE VERACITY OF HIS RESPONSES. THE DEVICES WERE REVISED BY ELIMINATING ITEMS OF WIDE VARIABILITY IN RESPONSE, AND A KEY FOR SCORING DEVELOPED ON THE BASIS OF THE RESPONSES OF WOMEN LEADERS IN 12 DIFFERENT OCCUPATIONS. STUDENT RESPONSES OBTAINED IN DISADVANTAGED JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS SHOWED THAT THE INSTRUMENT WAS USEFUL IN DESCRIBING THE THOUGHTS OF GROUPS OF STUDENTS. THE RELIABILITY OF GROUP RESPONSES WAS .935. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT A CURRICULUM UNIT BE DEVISED TO HELP JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FURTHER THEIR READINESS FOR EMPLOYMENT. FURTHER STUDY OF CHARACTERISTIC DIFFERENCES BETWEEN STUDENTS AND SOCIAL READINESS FOR EMPLOYMENT IS ALSO ADVISED. ALTHOUGH THE INSTRUMENT ELICITS VALID AND RELIABLE RESPONSES FROM STUDENTS, AND IS A USEFUL AID IN DEVELOPING STUDENT SOCIAL READINESS FOR EMPLOYMENT, IT SHOULD BE EXTENDED AND REFINED. (SK)
