Career Guidance and the Kuder Interest Inventories.
Science Research Associates, Inc., Chicago, IL.
The manual suggests various uses the guidance counselor can make of the Kuder interest surveys. Written by a counselor, the guide presents suggestions that reflect considerable experience with the Kuder tests. Guidelines for introducing, administering, and interpreting the instrument are included along with suggestions for ways to involve the faculty in expanding the results into a continuous process of career exploration. Suggestions are offered for ways to establish good communications concerning the tests with the school administration, community, local news media, and parents. A major feature of the manual is "the famous chart" which lists occupations that fell into the 10 major interest areas. The chart also indicates corresponding occupational briefs contained in the occupational exploration kit; file numbers contained in the career information kit; corresponding briefs contained in the widening occupational roles kit; dictionary of occupational titles numbers; and an "X" for those occupations included in the occupational outlook handbook.
