Developing Qualitative Career Assessment Processes

McMahon, Mary L., Patton, Wendy A., & Watson, Mark (2003) Developing Qualitative Career Assessment Processes. The Career Development Quarterly, 51(3), pp. 194-202.


Assessment has been integral to career counselling since the early 1900s. During that time, the greatest amount of attention was focused on quantitative assessment. Thus, there is till very little to guide the development and conduct of qualitative assessment in career counselling. The authors present an overview of qualitative assessment and its theoretical underpinnings and propose suggestions that could guide the development of qualitative career assessment instruments.
