Patton, Wendy A., Spooner-Lane, Rebecca S., & Creed, Peter (2005) Validation of the Short Form of the Career Development Inventory - Australian Version with a Sample of University Students. Australian Journal of Career Development, 14(3).


This paper reports on a further exploration into the reliability and validity of the shortened form of the Career Development Inventory - Australia (Creed & Patton, 2004), a career maturity measure being developed to meet the need for a shorter and up-to-date measure to provide data on this career development construct. Data gathered from 170 final year education students (34 males, 132 females) provided partial support for the measure’s internal consistency, factor structure and construct validity.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
