April 2016 Linking Client Assessment Profiles to O*NET® Occupational Profiles Within the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form and Mini Interest Profiler (Mini-IP)

The purpose of this report is to describe how client interest assessment profiles are linked to O*NET-SOC occupational profiles by means of the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form and O*NET Mini Interest Profiler (Mini-IP), two versions of the O*NET Interest Profiler. The Short Form and Mini-IP were developed to enable clients to quickly and accurately identify their work-related interests and use them to identify careers for exploration. The Mini-IP was specifically developed for use in mobile settings where it is ideal to have an interest measure that can be completed rapidly and easily. Both the Short Form and Mini-IP will greatly benefit career counseling settings where there is limited time for interest assessment and discussion and in employment centers where individuals may have a restricted amount of time for computer work.

March 2016 Examining the Efficacy of Emoji Anchors for the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form

This report presents the results of two studies intended to test the use of an emoji-anchored scale for use in the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form (Short-IP, Rounds, Su, Lewis & Rivkin, 2010). An emoji-anchored scale uses ideograms symbolizing facial expressions for each point on the response scale, rather than traditional text descriptions (e.g., “strongly like”). Emojis have become widely recognized and are automatically incorporated into most technological communication (e.g., text messaging keyboards on Apple and Android phones; built-in options for expressing mood in Facebook statuses and Gmail communication).

March 2016 Development of an O*NET® Mini Interest Profiler (Mini-IP) for Mobile Devices: Psychometric Characteristics

This report summarizes the developmental research to create the O*NET Mini Interest Profiler (Mini-IP), a shorter 30-item version of the Interest Profiler Short Form (Short-IP). The impetus for shortening the Interest Profiler was to develop brief RIASEC scales for use in mobile settings where it is ideal to have an interest measure that can be completed rapidly and easily.

June 2013 Occupational Interest Profiles for New and Emerging Occupations in the O*NET System: Summary

This report summarizes the effort to populate Occupational Interest Profiles (OIPs) for occupations new to the O*NET-SOC 2010. These new occupations are either new and emerging occupations or occupations identified within the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification. OIPs were developed by generating RIASEC (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional) interest profiles for the new occupations. OIPs provide an important link between the O*NET system and interest-based assessments used in career counseling and other applied settings. Expert rating methodologies and analyses are included within the report.

February 2010 Linking Client Assessment Profiles to O*NET Occupational Profiles Within the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form

This report describes how client interest assessment profiles are linked to O*NET-SOC occupational profiles by means of the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form, one of the O*NET Career Exploration Tools. The O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form was developed to enable clients to quickly and accurately identify their work-related interests and use them to identify careers for exploration. The linkage methodology described in this report is a modification of the previous linkage methodology used with other forms of the O*NET Interest Profiler.

February 2010 O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form Psychometric Characteristics: Summary

This report summarizes the initial development research to create a short form of the O*NET Interest Profiler. The primary objective was to develop brief RIASEC scales for use in counseling and consulting settings where it is helpful to have an interest measure that can be completed in a very short period of time. A secondary objective was to increase the endorsement rate for the Enterprising scale. Initial research on the psychometric properties of the instrument indicates acceptable levels of reliability and convergent and discriminant validity. Item selection in the development of the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form has successfully increased the endorsement rate for the Enterprising scale.

June 2008 Second Generation Occupational Interest Profiles for the O*NET System: Summary

This report summarizes the development of new Occupational Interest Profiles (OIPs) for all occupations that are represented in O*NET-SOC classification. This work was undertaken due to changes in the O*NET database content and structure including 9 updates to the data, changes to the O*NET-SOC taxonomy, and the addition of new and emerging occupations. The goal of the development was to use updated O*NET data in an expert rating procedure to develop OIPs consisting of six numerical scores corresponding to one of six interest areas (e.g., Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, Conventional). The resulting OIPs serve as an excellent description of the types of interests that can be satisfied by a given occupation. High point interest codes were also developed for each occupation. A more comprehensive study report will soon be available for download.

July 1999 Development of Occupational Interest Profiles for O*NET

This report focuses on the effort to generate vocational interest information included in the Worker Characteristics domain of the O*NET Content Model. The report describes how Holland's (1997) RIASEC work environments have been applied to the development of Occupational Interest Profiles (OIPs) for the occupations included in O*NET.

1999 O*NET Computerized Interest Profiler: Reliability, Validity, and Comparability

This report summarizes research conducted to further the development of the computerized version of the O*NET Interest Profiler. The purpose of the research was to assess the psychometric properties of the Computerized Interest Profiler and to evaluate its comparability with the paper-and- pencil version.

1999 Development of the O*NET Interest Profiler

This report describes the purposes, major steps, and outcomes of each of the first 7 development phases for the O*NET Interest Profiler. The eighth phase is described in O*NET Interest Profiler: Reliability, Validity, and Self-Scoring.

1999 O*NET Interest Profiler: Reliability, Validity, and Self-Scoring

This report summarizes a study designed to further the development of the O*NET Interest Profiler. The purpose of the study was to examine the psychometric properties — reliability and validity — of the final form of the O*NET Interest Profiler, and to evaluate the self-scoring aspect of the instrument.

1999 Linking Client Assessment Profiles to O*NET Occupational Profiles

This report describes the procedures used to compare and match a client's assessment profiles obtained from one or more of the O*NET Career Exploration Tools to O*NET-SOC occupation profiles. The report describes the corresponding algorithms developed for clients using a single O*NET tool and for clients using multiple tools.
