Abstract:

Prior studies have indicated the possible utility of the Strong Vocational Interest Blank and the Importance-Possibility Scale for the purpose of measuring career motivation in junior officers. In this study, the existing keys for these instruments were evaluated and some new keys developed. For a criterion of expressed career intent, the new keys were found to have validities considerably higher than those previously available. Moreover, the revised and expanded version of the Importance-Possibility Scale appears to be a better predictor of career intent than the Strong Vocational Interest Blank. Author
