Strong Vocational Interest Blank Scores for Junior College Students in Five Curricula.
Smith, Stuart E.
An investigation was conducted to determine if students in five junior college curricula could be differentiated by the Strong Vocational Interest Blank (SVIB) scores and if such differentiation could be improved by using several scores in combination rather than single scores separately. The SVIB was administered to 130 students at Alfred Agricultural & Technical School and the resulting means and standard deviations were submitted to analysis. The conventional overlap method of scaling was subsequently compared to the non-conventional multi-scale method to ascertain the latter's differentiating power. However, further studies based on a larger sample are necessary to adequately determine the effectiveness of the multi-scale approach.
