Farmer, Helen; And Others
This user's guide provides materials on the Career Motivation and Achievement Planning (C-MAP) Inventory for use with ninth and twelfth grade students. Chapter 1 discusses the purpose and uses of this assessment of long-range career commitment, short-range motivation to achieve on a particular task, and level of education and career aspiration. The next chapter provides information on the administration and hand scoring of the C-MAP. Some suggestions for counselors/teachers for interpreting the C-MAP profiles are presented in chapter 3. Suggestions are made for interpreting students' scores on the occupations list that contribute to their aspiration scores. Student instructions for interpreting their C-MAP profiles are reprinted, and additional suggestions for counselors/teachers are given. The chapter closes with four case examples. Chapters 4, 5, 6, and 7 cover the sample and norms, computation of reliability, and the analyses for scale independence and C-MAP validity. The final chapter discusses the development of the C-MAP. The theoretical model guiding the development is described, including the factors included in each aspect of the model. Discussion follows of the development of the motivation, background, personal, and environmental scales. Appendixes include the answer sheet, scoring instructions, occupation codes, and profile sheets. (YLB)
