Career Development Inventory and structured Questionnaires
Statistical Techniques Used:
Means, SDs, 2X2X3 ANOVAs and inter-correlations were used.
Findings of the study:
The study revealed areas in which knowledge and information are particularly lacking among female undergraduates. Importance of such tests are underscored for timely career guidance and other psychological interventions so that drop outs and under usage of females in gainful employment can be prevented. Also, the present study points towards the initial psychometric worth of the modified CDI.
