dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to improve an instrument used to assess career aspirations (the Career Aspiration Scale) so the revised measure can be used with confidence by counseling psychologists in research and practice. Three studies were conducted with a total of 583 undergraduate and graduate women. Results of these studies provided support for the reliability and validity of the Career Aspiration Scale-Revised when used with undergraduate and graduate women. Results from confirmatory factor analyses indicated that the three-factor solution had good model fit, thus supporting a revised measure with three subscales assessing achievement, leadership, and educational aspirations. Suggestions for future research and practice using the Career Aspiration Scale- Revised are provided.en_US
