Abstract : The purpose of this investigation was to develop and evaluate scales, using the item pool of the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory (SCII) to measure interests of 12 specified MOSs. The empirical method of contrast groups was used for scale development using 4 different reference samples and 11 MOS criterion samples; these comparisons extracted sufficient items for 39 scales. Reliability and validity of each scale were assessed in three phases. Results indicated that useful scales could be developed for most of the MOSs (except infantry and artillery) if sufficient samples could be obtained. It was recommended that an attempt be made to collect larger samples for those scales developed with small sample sizes. (Author)
