A COMPARISON OF SCORES OBTAINED THROUGH NORMAL AND VISUAL ADMINISTRATIONS OF THE OCCUPATIONAL INTEREST INVENTORY.
STOKER, H.W.; AND OTHERS
THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN CRITERION MEASURES AND SETS OF RANKINGS OF OCCUPATIONAL GROUPS WERE STUDIED. THE MAJOR PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE A FEASIBLE METHOD OF ADMINISTERING TESTS AND INVENTORIES BY TELEVISION. BECAUSE OF EXPENSE AND TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, DATA WERE COLLECTED IN A SIMULATED SITUATION. THE SUBJECTS WERE 91 ELEVENTH-GRADE STUDENTS IN A FLORIDA HIGH SCHOOL. THE STUDENTS WERE ADMINISTERED THE OCCUPATIONAL INTEREST INVENTORY (OII), ADVANCED FORM, UNDER NORMAL ADMINISTRATION CONDITIONS AND UNDER TWO EXPERIMENTAL CONDITIONS WHICH INVOLVED ADMINISTERING THE OII BY PROJECTING EACH OF ITS ITEMS ON A 3' X 5' SCREEN ONE AT A TIME. THE ITEM EXPOSURE TIME ON ONE EXPERIMENTAL ADMINISTRATION WAS EQUAL TO THE TIME ALLOTED FOR THE OII WHEN ADMINISTERED UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS, DIVIDED BY THE TOTAL NUMBER OF ITEMS. THE ITEM EXPOSURE TIME ON THE OTHER EXPERIMENTAL ADMINISTRATION WAS TWO-THIRDS THAT OF THE FORMER, AND IT WAS REGARDED AS THE PACED ADMINISTRATION. IN ADDITION, SUBJECTS WERE ASKED TO COMPLETE A CRITERION SCALE WHICH INVOLVED THEIR RANKING, ACCORDING TO PREFERENCE, THE OCCUPATIONS FOR WHICH SCORES ARE OBTAINED ON THE OII. THE DATA REVEALED THAT THE CRITERION MEASURE WAS RELATIVELY VALID. AN ANALYSIS OF THE DATA SUPPORTED THE BELIEF THAT VOCATIONAL INTEREST INVENTORIES SUCH AS THE OII YIELD SIMILAR SETS OF RANKINGS WHEN ITEMS ARE ADMINISTERED BY PROJECTING THEM ON A SCREEN AND WHEN THEY ARE PRESENTED IN BOOKLET FORM.
