Connecticut Career Guidance Assessment, 1974.
Deal, Richard E.; And Others
The study reports the results of a survey of 2,292 13-year olds and 2,173 17-year olds, in Connecticut, using a criterion-referenced assessment instrument designed to test 15 content domains (job satisfaction; occupational levels, fields, and emphasis; occupational trends; occupational levels and education; leisure time; job specialization/satisfaction; self awareness; life experiences and career choice; school subject areas; abilities and interests; steps in career planning; satisfaction from work; training programs; activities related to careers; and relationship among occupational level, academic ability, and interests). Detailed tabulation and discussion of results is presented in three sections: (1) highlights, including a discussion of the implications of the results; (2) base line, including comparisons between various groups within the population and an examination of the data for causes of high or low scores, with a view to the future use of these results as base-line data; and (3) content domain analysis, presenting, comparing, and discussing the responses in each area. Appended materials include: the Connecticut Guidance Objectives; definitions of terms used; the measurable objectives used in the development of the criterion-referenced test items; the assessment instruments, together with instructions and selected correspondence; and basic test response data.
