In order to meet the career investigation needs of younq adults of Hispanic origin, a project was conducted in Indiana to adapt an audiovisual vocational interest test (the Comparative Career Search) to the Spanish language and to adapt the visuals so that 50 percent of the work roles were of persons of Hispanic origin. A listing of the occupations presently included in the Comparative Career Search was developed and reviewed to determine the specific photographs which were necessary for achieving a 50 percent Hispanic imagery in the 72-item career interest test. Nominations and requests were conducted to gain photographic permission to obtain the job-specific shots. Laboratory preparation converted the pictures to correct-format slides, which, in turn, were developed into filmstrips for the final product. The instructions, scoring directions, and answer format were translated from English to Spanish and both printed and narrated to produce the answer sheet and taped directions. Following quantity production, a task force of Spanish speaking persons reviewed the instrument by completing the test. Their suggestions for improvement were gathered and are provided in the recommendations for further development and dissemination. (Author/KC)
