Abstract : The purpose of this study was to develop an improved system for using interest inventory scores in the new ASVAB 18/19-Career Exploration Program. Several procedures for assigning Holland vocational typology codes to occupations were compared across three of the most frequently used classification systems. The results indicate that using rank order by elevation of mean typology scale scores is a highly efficient and consistent method of determining codes. This method appears to provide the most valid approach to improving the differentiation of occupational interest types on the OCCU-FIND chart in the Career Exploration Program.
