Summary or Abstract : This study investigated a new approach to assessing the construct of career maturity during the period of adolescence. Super and Overstreet's (1960) developmental model in which they listed six dimensions of career maturity during adolescence was used to measuring this construct given that no current measures assess all aspects of vocational maturity. The study was also designed to evaluate a career exploration program that targeted the tasks appropriate to this developmental stage. This program was designed as a seven-week, one-hour per week class where students explored personal characteristics, information about the world of work, and other resources available to them for career exploration. Eighty-six tenth grade students from a community high school in the Midwest participated in the study. A pre-experimental pretest, posttest research design was used to evaluate the career exploration program. Results showed that, as hypothesized in this study, it appears that students at this developmental stage do have varied levels of career maturity and the tasks that each of the dimensions is purported to measure. Also, as it was hypothesized, when there appeared to be gender differences, females always scored higher than males in the different career maturity dimension scores. Limitations in the design of the study (i.e., lack of availability of a control group or ability to do random assignment) limited the conclusions that could be drawn regarding the career exploration program. Nevertheless, there were some observed pretest, posttest differences suggesting some preliminary benefit of this Career Exploration Program. Perhaps most importantly, these differences over time were mostly true for students who scored high in total career maturity index score but not always for those who scored low on this index. Limitations and future directions of this study are also discussed..
