The Influence of Vocational Interest Inventories: Some Implications for Psychological Testing.
Holland, John L.
The impact of psychological testing on the public is explored. Topics discussed include a review of the controversy over interest inventories, what has been learned from the research and from the political activity that was enacted relative to employment/admission testing, and some ideas for increasing the ability to cope more readily with current controversies over tests and inventories. Conclusions indicate a need for psychologists to concentrate not only on inventory reliability and construct validity but also on the improvement of their public image. (Author/BMW)
