Description

First published over 15 years ago, the Career Development Inventory (CDI; Super, Thompson, Lindeman, Jordaan, & Myers, 1979) measures readiness for making educational and vocational choices and operationally defines Super's structural model of adolescent career maturity. The present article systematically analyzes the body of literature that has evaluated and explicated the psychometric characteristics and uses of the CDI. This review examines empirical findings pertinent to the reliability, factor structure, and validity of the CDI; evaluates the instrument's present status; and identifies topics for future research.
