Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory: Review of Empirical Research.
Hines, Howard; Fretz, Bruce R.
All published empirical studies of the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory (SCII), 1974 thru 1980, are reviewed. While only a few predictive validity studies have been completed, concurrent and construct validity studies are consistently supportive of the validity of the General Occupational Themes, Basic Interest Scales and Occupational Scales. Several problems are noted regarding the appropriateness of the classification of Occupational Scales and Basic Interest scales within the General Occupational Theme groups. Too little work has been conducted with special scales and administrative indices to make assessment beyond those already noted in the inventory's manual. Studies of the presence of age, race, and sex bias in the instrument yielded data mostly supportive of the appropriateness of the SCII for the groups for which it is purportedly suitable. Areas in need of further or different types of research are identified. (Author/GK)
