Development and Initial Validation of a Chinese Career Barriers Inventory.
Tien, Hsiu-Lan Shelley
This study developed an instrument for the assessment of career-related barriers in a Chinese culture. A pilot version of the Chinese Career Barriers Inventory (CCBI) consisting of 95 items was tested with 403 college students in Taiwan. After item and factor analyses, the CCBI was reduced to 80 items comprising 12 scales. Reliability coefficients for the 12 scales based on a sample of 850 college students ranged from 0.68 to 0.92. Results of the factor analysis supported the construct validity of the CCBI. The Chinese version of the Career Barriers Inventory is a useful instrument for understanding college students' perceptions of career-related barriers in a Chinese culture.
