A Vocational Interest Inventory Based on Roe's Interest Areas.
Mitchell, Sandra K.; And Others
The construction and early validation of an ipsative, forced-choice vocational interest inventory (VII) to measure Roe's eight foci of occupational activity is detailed. Designed for counseling the broad range of high school students, the VII produced consistently interpretable mean profiles for groups of high school juniors having only tentative vocational orientations such as health sciences, engineering, business. Factor analytic studies revealed three dimensions. Service vs. Technology and Science vs. Business provided confirmation for the Roe-Holland hypothesis of a circular continuity of vocational interests. The third factor defined an Organizational (indoor) vs. Outdoor dimension. (Author)
