Measures put in place to remove or reduce biases

 A review was made in order to ensure that all aspects of VOCATION accurately measure contemporary occupational domains and interests. Items were checked for cultural bias, clarity and accuracy.

DIF analysis was performed across gender in order to ensure that there was not a bias towards either males or females, and therefore that VOCATION is a fair test for both genders. For this analysis, the UK norm sample was divided according to gender; 167 female and 142 male.


Key information related to the last update

VOCATION was developed from a thorough multi-stage process. The precursor to the questionnaire (Occupational Interest Inventory-R) was first developed in 2006. Questionnaire items and factors have been updated in order to ensure

a) that items reflect contemporary ways of working,

b) effective prevention of faking and social bias,

c) that practitioners have a tool that improves the accuracy of assessment decisions and

d) that individuals are clearly guided when assessing fit with desired roles and careers.

As well as these aspects, throughout the revision of this assessment, it was made sure that the structure of factors and items met the highest standards of reliability and validity.
