An Introductory Guide to the Community College Guidance Profile (CCGP).
Holland, John L.
The Community College Guidance Profile (CCGP) was developed to accelerate and simplify the assessment process in vocational and educational guidance. The CCGP includes six main sections which are concerned with: (1) educational and vocational aspirations, (2) self estimates of abilities and personal traits, (3) vocational interests, (4) activities and potentials, (5) competencies, and (6) special educational needs. The test is brief, 45 minutes, requires no supervision, and is easy to score (no machine scoring necessary). The student can see his scores and some of the relationships among his goals, interests, competencies as he finishes the blank. No negative reactions to the content have been encountered. The CCGP is intended to lessen the work of the counselor by serving as a simple, screening inventory. However, in interpreting the score, several points must be kept in mind, including using the CCGP only in conjunction with other information. Data on validity and reliability are included in the report. (Author/KJ)
