The Wisconsin Significant Other Battery: Construction, Validation, and Reliability Tests of Questionnaire Instruments to Identify 'Significant Others' and Measure Their Educational and Occupational Expectations for High School Youth. Final Report.
Haller, A.O.; And Others
This report describes the construction, validation, and reliability tests of the Wisconsin Significant Other Battery. WISOB is used to identify "significant others" and to measure their educational and occupational expectations for high school students. Evidence from the report indicates that WISOB provides a valid, reliable, economical, rapidly administered, and rapidly scored set of instruments that: (1) identifies those persons who, at the time of administration, are exerting important influence over the educational and occupational aspirations of high school youth, and (2) measures the expectations that those influential people hold for the educational and occupational attainment of the high school students. WISOB is meant as a short-term, immediate tool that may be used to help motivate more youth toward higher occupational levels and toward the higher-level education needed to obtain those occupations.
