An Investigation of the Academic Achievement Scale of the Strong Vocational Interest Blank.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the value of the academic achievement scale (AACH) which is an index of the Strong Vocational Interest Blank (SVIB). Subjects were 149 male and female students who requested help in decision making. All subjects had taken the American College Testing program examination (ACT) and the SVIB. Grade point averages (GPA) from both high school and college were also available. The AACH scale appears, from results obtained, to be a very modest predictor of academic achievement (as measured by cumulative GPA when applied to the Counseling Center population studied). It is suggested that the scale is a relatively ineffective tool for use with the University of Utah Counseling Center population when its function is defined as discriminating between potential high and low achievers.
