Knowledge of Occupations, Level of Aspiration, Career Choice and Level of Vocational Development Among College Women.
Thompson, Donald L.
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between level of vocational development and career choice, knowledge and perceptions of occupations and level of aspiration among college females. Subjects were selected from the dormitory population at the University of Connecticut using a random stratified method so as to include a total of 75 students from each of four undergraduate grade levels. Subjects were administered a series of tests and a questionnaire (including the Occupational Prestige Scale--Short Form, the Occupational Aspiration Scale, and the Crites Vocational Development Inventory) during the summer and fall of 1972. The data analysis to be completed in October 1972, includes the use of the statistical techniques of analysis of variance and multiple correlation. The results should provide counselors and other educators information with which to help females become fully functioning in the world of work. (Author)
