Career Education Interest Inventory Assessment. Final Report.
Bloomfield, Ellyn S.
Career education stresses the importance of increasing the individual's awareness of the world of work, expanding career horizons, and helping students make realistic choices among various adult roles. Career interest inventories are intended to broaden a student's awareness of job requirements and to bring to their attention occupations that would expand their career options. The popularity of career interest inventories has stimulated publishers to glut the market with a bewildering array of instruments. The purpose of this report is to assist the local school district in its sorting-out process. Users of this report will be able to review the test descriptions to find those career interest inventories which seem to come closest to meeting their needs, and then be able to examine the actual documents provided for review by the publisher. This report contains reviews of twenty-three commercially available interest inventories together with recommendations as to which ought to be considered for purchase. Also included in this report are indexes of publishers' names and addresses and an index of test titles grouped by intended grade levels. The appendixes contain a glossary of terms, an annotated listing of interest inventories which were not reviewed in the text, an annotated listing of career awareness and development measures, and an annotated bibliography of references to tests and assessment devices appropriate for use with young children.
