CAREER DECISIONS OF CANADIAN YOUTH, A COMPILATION OF BASIC DATA.
BRETON, RAYMOND; MCDONALD JOHN C.
IN A NATIONWIDE SURVEY OF CANADIAN SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS, THE DETERMINANTS OF THEIR OCCUPATIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL ASPIRATIONS, PLANS AND DECISIONS WERE MEASURED. THE SAMPLE POPULATION INCLUDED 373 VOCATIONAL, ACADEMIC COMMERICAL AND SPECIAL SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE NINE PROVINCES OF CANADA AND NEWFOUNDLAND. THE PRIMARY INSTRUMENT WAS A QUESTIONNAIRE ACCOMPANIED BY AN INTELLIGENCE TEST OR A MENTAL ABILITY TEST AND AN INTEREST INVENTORY. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS ALSO COMPLETED BY ALL TEACHERS AND GUIDANCE PERSONNEL INCLUDED IN THE SAMPLE. THE PRELIMINARY REPORT PRESENTED ONLY WHAT THE STUDENTS SAID ABOUT THEIR EDUCATIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL PLANS, LEAVING THE ANALYZING AND INTERPRETING OF THE DATA TO LATER REPORTS. THE EDUCATIONAL PLANS SECTION CONCERNED THE STUDENTS' PLANS ABOUT REMAINING IN HIGH SCHOOL AND THE FACTORS AFFECTING THIS DECISION. IT ALSO INCLUDED POSTSECONDARY EDUCATIONAL PLANS. OCCUPATIONAL PREFERENCE, UNCERTAINTY ABOUT PREPARATION AND ATTITUDES TOWARD WORK WERE PRESENTED UNDER THE HEADING OF OCCUPATIONAL PLANS. THE SECTION ON GUIDANCE DISCUSSED GUIDANCE PERSONNEL, THE RANGE AND ADEQUACY OF GUIDANCE FACILITIES AND THE STUDENT'S AWARENESS OF GUIDANCE SERVICES. THIS DOCUMENT INCLUDES THE TEXT IN BOTH ENGLISH AND FRENCH. (CG)
