Employing Regression Analysis to Test Aptitude-Counseling Treatment Interactions.
This paper deals with a study designed to pursue the question; "What treatment by whom is most effective for this individual with that specific problem under which set of circumstances?" One of the objectives of the study was to determine if there was any relationship between two predictor variables, personality type (extraversion-introversion) and perceptual orientation (field independence--field dependence); and treatment effects as shown by four criterion variables: (1) a knowledge test, (2) a simulation test, (3) frequency, and (4) variety of career exploratory behaviors. A stepwise regression procedure was used to analyze the data. No significant relationships were found between treatment effects and predictor variables. A variety of difficulties which may have contributed to these results were identified and implications for future research were presented. (Author)
