Summary

This report deals with the organization, rationale, methods and expected end-products of a research project (scheduled for completion on June 23, 1970) for the construction and validation of a reliable vocational maturity measure (vmm). The project's eight phases and activities are explained. The project assumes--(1) the individual and society as a whole suffer from unwise educational and vocational choices, (2) these choices are related to vocational maturity, and (3) a need exists for better measures of vocational maturity. The project staff will administer, to representative samples of southern public school pupils in grades eight-12, three tests--(1) the tryout form of the vmm, (2) the preliminary form, and (3) the final form. After all the data is analyzed, a final report will give an account of the project and will include the vmm, an administrator's manual, and a technical manual of normative data for the vmm. It is expected that the vmm will aid in--(1) evaluating educational programs which include vocational exploration as a major component, (2) increasing understanding of the construct of vocational maturity, (3) identifying pupils who need special assistance in vocational development, and (4) evaluating programs designed to provide students with vocational exploratory experiences.
