Assessment Instruments for Use in Two-Year College Career Planning and Development Programs.
Hafer, A. A.
Assessment instruments play an important role in the 2-year college career planning and development process. The importance of these devices indicates that considerable thought and planning is necessary to ensure use of the best instruments for the particular college. A literature review and a survey of seven 2-year colleges in the Albany, New York, area and six 2-year colleges nationwide were conducted to determine which tests these colleges use in their career planning and development programs. Based on this information, the following tests were recommended for 2-year college career planning and development programs: an aptitude test, especially the Differential Aptitude Tests; an interest inventory, particularly the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory for students who plan to transfer to a 4-year college, and the Career Assessment Inventory for terminal program students; career awareness, knowledge, and attitude tests, such as the Self-Directed Search (Holland), and the Jackson Personality Research Form E, on an as-needed basis. (The greater part of this paper reviews various career preference and development assessment instruments and details which colleges use which forms.) (KC)
