Validation Study of V. I. S. I. O. N.
Elliott, Paul G.
In an attempt to depart from the traditional process of orientating students to career awareness, a new approach is being developed at the Indiana Career Resource Center at South Bend, Indiana. The Basic concept of V. I. S. I. O. N. (Visual Imagery Selector for Indexing Occupational Needs) attempts to utilize a combination of the respondents' visual and auditory perceptions in series with a Holland typology. The program utilizes a 35mm slide picture and sound format. The program format relies on the career selection scheme suggested by Dr. John L. Holland's rationale. Preliminary validation of the system was accomplished by presenting the program to members of unique sample groups of practicing professionals. Their responses were empirically analyzed and provide predictive validity statements. Through the use of a chi-square analysis, the concept of visual discriminations of work descriptors is possible in a survey of vocational interests utilizing a Holland typology. These results are to be reconfirmed in a similar manner in 1975, utilizing a revised edition of the survey. (Author)
