Critique of Conceptualization, Measurement, and Interpretation of Youths' Occupational and Educational Status Projections.
Butler, Richard R.
A review of the related literature indicates that research and youths' status projections have been traditionally characterized by a tendency toward psychological and behavioral conceptualizations, interpretations, and action implications. Aspiration and expectation elicitors, however, have primarily measured cultural value orientations. This incongruity in the research process has resulted in: questionable behavioral implications derived from the measurement of essentially normative phenomena; and psychological perspectives in which relatively common value orientations of persons of different life chances are perceived as qualitatively different.
