The Normative Study of Indiana Students Using the Comparative Career Search Test. Final Report.
Dudley, Gerald O.
An instrument was developed and field tested to provide vocational counselors with statewide vocational interest stratification patterns of secondary school youth. Analysis was made of a previously developed prototype that used slides showing workers in situ in order to elicit indications of student interest. Items from this were arranged to produce filmstrip and cassette versions for the Comparative Career Search (CSS); a hand-scorable answer form was developed; and the package was field tested in fifty school systems. Statistical analysis of data produced the necessary test of project objectives and development of student norms. Recommendations for further revision at a later date were made. (Appendixes contain answer forms, both before and after revision, the audio cassette script, correspondence, norm graphs, and a user's manual.) (CP)
