Occupational Sex-Role Stereotyping. Effects of a Ninth-Grade Experience-Based Career Education Program on Occupational Sex-Role Stereotyping.
Humburg, Renae Bygel
A study was conducted to determine the effects of a ninth-grade experience-based career education (EBCE) program upon occupational sex role stereotyping. Twenty-four volunteers were assigned to the EBCE group and twenty-four assigned to the control group. The career education group met four class periods per week and one full day per week for community resource site exploration. Students explored both traditional and nontraditional occupations for men and women in the community. Positive effect was defined in terms of lower absolute values assigned to occupational sex-role stereotyping scores on an occupational role identification inventory. Findings indicated a significant difference between the EBCE group and the control group on occupational sex role stereotyping measures of the occupational role identification inventory. The EBCE group was significantly less sex stereotyped in their view of the occupational world than was the control group. (LRA)
