An Outcome Study of Career Decision Self-Efficacy and Indecision in an Undergraduate Constructivist Career Course
Grier-Reed, Tabitha L.; Skaar, Nicole R.
Career Development Quarterly, v59 n1 p42-53 Sep 2010
This study explored outcomes in a constructivist career course. Using a pretest-posttest design, the authors assessed the empowerment (operationalized as career decision self-efficacy) and career indecision of 82 culturally diverse college students at a large, midwestern university. Data were analyzed using a multivariate analysis of variance. Results indicated that students reported significant increases in empowerment with no commensurate decreases in career indecision. In addition to shedding light on the nuanced relationship between empowerment or career decision self-efficacy and indecision, results indicate the potential constructivist career development has to empower culturally diverse college students.
