The CAPA Integrative Online System for College Major Exploration
Betz, Nancy E.; Borgen, Fred H.
Journal of Career Assessment, v18 n4 p317-327 Nov 2010
Career assessment has advanced on several fronts, enabling a CAPA integrative online system for exploring college majors with unprecedented precision and utility. The key inventories in the system are the CAPA Confidence Inventory (CCI), with its 6 general and 27 specific scales, and the CAPA Interest Inventory, with its 6 general and 35 specific scales. Results for these inventories are displayed online when they are completed, enhanced with extensive interpretive materials. With regression models, college major clusters with best fit are displayed based on high scores on the specific confidence and interest scores. Several studies of the inventories and the CAPA assessment system with several thousand college students have demonstrated their validity and utility. (Contains 4 figures.)
