Abstract : Because many military recruits are young, unskilled workers, there is a need for assessment of career maturity as part of the recruiting process. An existing pencil-and-paper measure, the Career Maturity Assessment (CMA), was validated on Navy recruits, using another existing measure, My Vocational Situation, as the criterion. A computerized version of the CMA was developed, called Career Plans Check-Up, which was validated on Navy recruits, with the CMA as the criterion. The measures were highly correlated. All three instruments measure the same construct, career maturity. Keywords: Armed services recruiting, Vocational guidance.
