OCCUPATIONAL ASPIRATION SCALE FOR FEMALES.
JEFFS, GEORGE A.
OCCUPATIONAL TITLES USABLE IN ASSESSING OCCUPATIONAL GOALS OFSENIOR HIGH SCHOOL FEMALES WERE SELECTED AS THE FIRST STEP IN ESTABLISHING AN OCCUPATIONAL ASPIRATION SCALE FOR FEMALES. A LIST OF 117 OCCUPATIONAL TITLES, COMPILED FROM THREE PREVIOUS STUDIES AND "THE DICTIONARY OF OCCUPATIONAL TITLES," WAS RATED ON A SIX-LEVEL SCALE AS TO ITS GENERAL STANDING BY APPROXIMATELY 1,000 GIRLS IN GRADES 9 THROUGH 12 FROM FOUR COMMUNITIES IN UTAH AND NEVADA. MEAN PRESTIGE RATINGS WERE DETERMINED AND PLACED IN RANK ORDER. LAWYERS HAD THE HIGHEST AND TELEGRAPH MESSENGERS THE LOWEST MEAN PRESTIGE RATING. THE 117 WERE SUBJECTED TO ACCEPTANCE-REJECTION CRITERIA INVOLVING STUDENT RESPONSE AND LISTING IN PREVIOUS STUDIES, AND 80 WERE SELECTED FOR USE IN THE SCALE. RATINGS RANGING FROM 2.0 TO 10.0 WERE ASSIGNED TO EACH TITLE, AND THE TITLES WERE DIVIDED INTO 10 WEIGHT CATEGORIES. THE SCALE AND SCORING KEY, THE LIST OF 117 OCCUPATIONS, THE SELECTION-REJECTION CHART, THE MEAN PRESTIGE RATINGS, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED. THE NEXT STEP IS TO ESTABLISH THE VALIDITY AND RELIABILITY FOR THE SCALE. (MS)
