Career Assessment with Special Populations: A Survey of National Experts.
Kapes, Jerome T.; Martinez, Linda
A sample of 16 national experts on career assessment from many geographic areas of the country and different professional roles were surveyed to identify those career assessment instruments that are most used, or most likely to be useful, with special populations. In round 1 of the survey, the experts nominated 93 instruments, including 27 that were nominated by at least 3 experts. In round 2, the experts rated 26 of the nominated instruments. The most frequently nominated instruments were the Career Occupational Preference System (COPS) and Self-Directed Search (SDS). Six of the 16 experts included the COPS and SDS on their list. The Center for Innovative Teaching Experiences (CITE) Learning Styles Inventory received the greatest number of high ratings, followed by the COPS, Life Centered Career Education Battery, Transition Planning Inventory, Career Ability Placement Survey, and Wide Range Interest-Opinion Test. The national experts expressed considerable differences of opinion about many instruments; even the highest-rated instruments were rated low by some experts. (The five attached tables, which together constitute approximately 70% of the document, list the instruments nominated in round 1 and provide the following information for the 26 instruments rated in round 2: name, rating, description, and publisher name and address.)
