Description

The present study examined the construct and concurrent validity of the Career Factors Inventory (CFI; Chartrand, Robbins, and Morrill, 1989). The CFI, along with the Career Choice Status Inventory (Savickas, 1993), the Vocational Identity Scale (VIS; Holland, Daiger, and Power, 1980), and the Career Development Inventory-Adult Form II (CDI-A; Super, Zelkowitz, and Thompson, 1975), were completed by 227 college students. Strong support for the CFI's construct validity was provided by a principal components analysis showing four components that paralleled the four scales in the inventory and correlations in the expected direction with age and year in school. Evidence in support of the CFI's concurrent validity was provided by correlations in the expected direction with career decidedness, vocational identity, and career development.
