Validity of Childhood Career Development Scale Scores in South Africa
Stead, Graham B.; Schultheiss, Donna E. Palladino
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v10 n2 p73-88 Jul 2010
The purpose of this study was to provide evidence of the construct and concurrent validity of the Childhood Career Development Scale's (CCDS) scores among South African primary school children. Using a sample of 808 children in grades four through seven, evidence for the CCDS's construct validity was provided using confirmatory factor analysis, with eight factors confirmed. Evidence for the CCDS's concurrent validity was also presented by analyzing the relationship between subscales of the Childhood Career Development Scale and measures of self-esteem, locus of control, and children's industry. The CCDS continues to emerge as a promising theoretically-driven assessment tool.
