Student's Booklet; To Accompany The Career Data Book: Results from Project TALENT'S Five-Year Follow-Up Study.
Flanagan, John C.; And Others
The Student Booklet is a companion document to "The Career Data Book: Results from Project TALENT'S Five-year Followup Study" (CE 000 755). The booklet's purpose is to enable the high school student to compare his abilities, achievements, interests, and background with those of other young people who went into various occupations so he may be guided in his career choice. By plotting his percentile rankings from interest inventories, vocabulary and ability tests, and other variables on a profile, the student is referred to any of twelve career groups: engineering, physical science, math, and architecture; medical and biological sciences; business administration; general teaching and social services; humanities, law, social and behavioral sciences; fine arts, performing arts; technical jobs; proprietors, sales; mechanics, industrial trades; construction trades; secretarial-clerical, office workers; and general labor, community, and public service. From that point, he is referred to occupations within the groups. The inferences drawn are based on data from inventories and tests given to high school students in 1960, with career choice data updated in a five-year followup study as part of Project TALENT. (AG)
