John Holland's theory and the effective use of computer-assisted career guidance systems

Unknown Date (has links)
The study focused on the relationship between client characteristics, drawn primarily from John Holland's theory of vocational choice, and the effective use of computer-assisted career guidance systems. The client characteristics included: gender, personality type (based on subjects' scores on the Vocational Preference Inventory), level of vocational identity and career decidedness, and degree of interest definition. The subjects were 102 individuals who sought assistance at a university-based career center. After an initial interview, subjects completed the pre-forms and scheduled an appointment to use the SIGI PLUS computer system. Following their use of the system, subjects completed the post-forms and were debriefed by the researcher. / A regression analysis was conducted using client characteristics as the independent variables and ratings on a computer-assisted career guidance evaluation form as the dependent variable. Significant results were found for the personality type variable, with Social and Enterprising types rating the system lower on its ability to help them acquire self and occupational knowledge. Although not significant at the.05 level, a similar relationship was found for persons with higher Vocational Identity scores. Further analysis of post-measures using t-tests revealed significant changes in subjects' vocational identity, need for occupational information and level of career decidedness after using SIGI PLUS. / These results provide further support for the positive impact of CACG systems on clients' career decision-making needs, but also suggest that some attention to client personality characteristics and vocational identity level may be warranted prior to their use of a computer-based career guidance system. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 51-04, Section: A, page: 1120. / Major Professor: Robert C.

The effect of internally vs. externally set training goals on performance and satisfaction

Unknown Date (has links)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of internal vs. external goal setting on the performance and satisfaction of communication skills training participants. / The subjects consisted of 41 male and 33 female undergraduate students enrolled in Introduction to Management and Introduction to Marketing courses at St. Peter's College. Following the completion and scoring of the Discriminating Helping Skills Pretest, which measures subjects ability to discriminate between effective and non-effective helping responses, subjects were either assigned training goals (external goal setting condition), selected their own goals (internal goal setting condition), or did not participate in a formal goal setting procedure (control). Subjects then viewed a 20 minute videotape which is designed to help students learn to discriminate effective vs. non-effective responses (Carkhuff, 1981). After completion of the video, subjects were given the Discriminating Helping Skills Postest to measure performance and a Semantic Differential Scale to determine satisfaction with the video. / Results obtained in this study indicated that the satisfaction and performance of subjects were not significantly different at the.05 level with respect to the goal setting procedures in which they participated. Post-hoc analyses attempted to explain the findings of non-significance. These post-hoc results suggested that a possible lack of interest due to demographic characteristics, specifically race and major, may have contributed to the obtained findings. Given that methodological limitations may have contributed to the non-significant results obtained in this study, it is recommended that future research attempt to study these hypotheses with appropriate modifications in the research design. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 49-12, Section: A, page: 3627. / Major Professor: James P.

An investigation of the impact of the Florida improved career decision-making workshops on the delivery of career guidance services

Unknown Date (has links)
This study investigated the impact of the Florida improved career decision making workshops (ICDMs) in enhancing the delivery of career guidance services. The primary purpose of the ICDM workshops was to enhance practitioner skills and knowledge for providing career information to clients. / This study was qualitative in nature and conducted through a series of three focus group discussions. Focus groups were used to identify which products and processes were used by the practitioners as they provided labor market information (LMI) to individuals or groups in search of career guidance. It also attempted to ascertain what conditions helped or hindered the practitioners as they utilized the ICDM training. / The analysis of the data resulted in findings generally supportive of the ICDM workshops. The focus group participants rated both the products and presentations as being useful. Their concerns did imply that they believed some modifications would enhance the results. / During the discussion of concerns the participants indicated they valued the ICDM workshops and wanted them to be continued. They also believed that career planning was becoming a widely accepted process. They did suggest that more staffing was needed to improve the effectiveness of their efforts. They further suggested that the ICDM trainers should attempt to broaden their target groups to include administrators or decision-makers who could provide increased support for these efforts. Consequently, it was recommended that future workshops should continue to focus upon the existing primary purpose, but the participants' list should be expanded to include advocates as well as practitioners. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 52-02, Section: A, page: 0430. / Major Professor: Harman D.
