Guidelines for Assessment of Sex Bias and Sex Fairness in Career Interest Inventories.
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The draft guidelines are the outcome of a broadly representative three-day workshop and represent a more specific definition than previously available of the many aspects of sex fairness in career interest inventories and related interpretive, technical, and promotional materials. The diverse concerns of inventory users, respondents, authors, and publishers were taken into consideration and resolved as far as possible. The guidelines are grouped in three sections: (1) The Inventory Itself, (2) Technical Information, and (3) Interpretive Information. Section 1 gives recommendations on the form and content of the interest inventory. Section 2 provides guidelines on the presentation and interpretation of materials, reporting of scores, composition of criterion groups and norm groups, investigation of the validity of interest inventories, and provisions for updating. Section 3 is concerned with the quality of interpretive information provided in detail in the publisher's manual and supporting materials. Footnotes and references are appended. It is believed these guideline recommendations will be valuable for developers, publishers, and users of career inventories. (NH)
