The Vocational Commitment Index; Items, Item Means, Standard Deviations, Item-Total Score Correlations and Item T-Values of Differences Between Upper and Lower Score Groups.
Weis, Susan F.; Hubbard, Constance F.
This device, a potential instrument for measurement of an important aspect of the worker--job relationship, was developed for use in guidance and counseling; personnel matters of business and industry; career, occupational, and vocational education; and in efforts to explore and validate the career ladders and lattices within occupational fields. The instrument contains 74 statements of behaviors descriptive of one's relationship to his or her job. The subject responds to each statement in accordance with the response categories of strongly agree, agree, disagree and strongly disagree. Scoring involves assigning a weight of 1 to 4 for each response; strong agreement given the 4 rating and so on. Responses to all items are then summed to yield a total score. Scores may range from 74, which is interpreted as representing a vocationally noncommitted individual; to 296 which is interpreted as representing a highly committed individual. Included are items, item means, standard deviations, item-total score correlations and item t-value of differences between upper and lower score groups. For a related document see TM003577.
