Stability of Students' Educational and Vocational Plans.
Bligh, Harold F.; Shaffer, W. Michael
This study examined the stability of students' educational and vocational plans over a two-year period. The Student Information Questionnaire of the Ohio Vocational Interest Survey was administered to a sample of eighth-graders who were again tested two years later. In general, the older students had more stable plans than the younger ones and the girls' plans were more stable in all age groups. In almost every case at least half or more of the students changed their plans during the two year period. The data has significance for people responsible for planning guidance programs and services. Students' plans tend to change, especially in the early secondary grades, and students need greater exposure to information about vocational education programs. (Author/WS)
