Validation of the Career-Related Parent Support Scale among Chinese High School Students
Cheng, Sandra; Yuen, Mantak
Career Development Quarterly, v60 n4 p367-374 Dec 2012
The Career-Related Parent Support Scale (CRPSS; Turner, Alliman-Brissett, Lapan, Udipi, & Ergun, 2003) was translated and modified to form the 24-item Chinese version of the scale. As in the case of the original CRPSS, the Chinese version includes 4 subscales (Instrumental Assistance, Emotional Support, Verbal Encouragement, and Career-Related Modeling). The Chinese version of the CRPSS was validated in this study with a sample of Hong Kong high school students (N = 677). Reliability analyses showed that the total scale and subscales were internally consistent. The results of the exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis suggested that the Chinese version of the CRPSS provided adequate indicators of Chinese adolescents' perceptions of parent support for their career aspirations.
