Khasawneh, Samer
Australian Journal of Career Development, v20 n1 p24-31 Aut 2011
The main purpose of this study was to determine the level of occupational engagement among university students in one Jordanian university. The instrument used to collect data in this study was the occupational engagement scale-student (OES-S-14 items) developed by Cox (2008). The OES-S went through rigorous cross-cultural translation process to ensure its validity. The study surveyed 139 students who were enrolled in the vocational education courses and evaluation courses offered by the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the Hashemite University. Results of the study indicated that participants have high level of occupational engagement. The study also indicated that students enrolled in the vocational course exhibited higher levels of occupational engagement than those enrolled in the evaluation course. (Contains 2 tables.)
