A Quantitative Assessment of Gender and Career Decision-Making Confidence Levels of High School Seniors in a School-to-Work Program Using the Career Decision Scale.
Fawcett, Mary; Maycock, George
This study measured differences in the levels of career indecision for urban male and female high school seniors who had varying levels of experience in vocational programs or job related activities through school-to-work (STW) vocational programs. The 113 students, of whom 44% were male and 56% were female, completed the Career Decision Scale (CDS). The results determined that female students have lower career indecision than male students. A possible factor in higher career levels for high school females is that they may see their career options more narrowly than the males. A discussion is included on why several limitations of the study prevent generalization to all high school seniors. (Contains 25 references.) (JDM)
