Tien, Hsiu-Lan Shelley
Journal of Career Assessment, v13 n1 p114-127 2005
The purpose of the study was to test the classification system for career decision difficulties of college students in a Chinese culture. Five hundred twenty-one college students completed the Chinese version of the Career Decision-Making Difficulties Questionnaire. Data obtained were analyzed by multivariate analysis of variance, factor analysis, and a clustering algorithm, ADDTREE. The results indicated significant differences between decided and undecided students on their perceptions of career difficulties, (10,464) = .729. The results of factor analysis and the ADDTREE analysis indicated that the three-group classification system for career decision-making difficulties was generally supported. However, for the undecided students in the process of career decision making, the factors before and during the process were mixed.
