Career Planning Profile National Norms for Vocational-Technical Students beyond High School.
American Coll. Testing Program, Iowa City, IA. Research and Development Div.
The Career Planning Profile (CPP) national norms presented in this document provide comprehensive information on the abilities, interests, and other personal characteristics of a cross section of vocational and technical students enrolled in a wide range of programs. It was developed to help young people consider a broad range of occupations and educational programs beyond high school. The national norms presented represent 17,137 vocational-technical students entering 100 postsecondary vocational-programs in community (or junior) colleges and other public vocational-technical institutions. Chapter 1 discusses norming the CPP and presents information on the selection of the national norm group, characteristics of the national norm group, norm group students, norm group institutions, and scaling the CPP measures. Chapter 2 concerns general norms, vocational-technical program cluster norms, and special subgroup norms. Chapter 3 presents career planning profile student report modifications and interpretative aids. Chapter 4 contains a summary of reliability and validity data, including vocational interest profile scale structure, differentiation of vocational-technical programs, and prediction of grades in vocational-technical courses. Appendixes, making up two-thirds of the document, contain a list of institutions administering the CPP during the national norming period, and detailed information and data on general norms, vocational-technical cluster norms, special subgroup norms, and program cluster profiles.
