Challenges of Internet-Based Assessment: Measuring Career Decision-Making Difficulties
Kleiman, Tali; Gati, Itamar
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v37 n1 p41 Apr 2004
In the twenty-first century, for a growing number of people around the world, the Internet is used not only for gathering information but also for self-help. The uses of the Internet are steadily growing, and it has become an inseparable part of everyday life for ordinary people (Barak, 1999; Barak & English, 2002; Gore & Leuwerke, 2000; Sampson, 1999). Today it also provides counseling and personal assessment in various domains, including assistance in career-related issues. The availability of career assessment resources on the Internet has potential benefits as well as potential problems (e.g., Barak & Cohen, 2002; Sampson & Lumsden, 2000). The primary goal of the present study was to examine the features of the Internet versions of the Career Decision-Making Difficulties Questionnaire (CDDQ; Gati, Krausz, & Osipow, 1996) as well as the relations between the CDDQ and the needs of individuals who visited the Future Directions Internet site (www.kivunim.com, in Hebrew) in which the CDDQ is embedded.
