Description of the strong
Description of the Strong

  • 317-item inventory

  • Designed to provide “compare [an individual's] pattern of responses to the pattern of responses of people in of different types and in different occupations"

  • First published in 1927

  • Designed to provide information about the world of work, and to promote occupational exploration by assessing an individual's pattern of interests.

Strong sections
Strong: Sections

  • Six General Occupational Themes based on Holland’s (1997) typology,

  • 25 Basic Interest Scales

  • 211 Occupational Scales

  • 4 personal style scales: Work Style, Learning Environment, Risk Taking, and Leadership Style.

  • Administrative indices show the number of total responses; percentages of the like, indifferent, and dislike responses; and infrequent or unpopular responses.

Strong additional information
Strong: Additional information

  • Time to complete: ½ hour

  • Reading level: sixth grade.

  • Age level: 17 and older, because young respondents do not have stable interest patterns.

  • Scoring service must be used.

  • Output: profiles or interpretations

Strong norms
Strong: Norms

  • The General Occupational Themes Basic Interest Scales and Personal Style Scales were normed on 9,484 men and 9467 women; this represents men and women in each of the occupational groups collected as criterion groups for the 1994 revision.

  • The mean for both sexes is set at a standard score of 50 and a standard deviation of 10.

Strong occupational scale norms
Strong: Occupational Scale Norms

  • Normed on those employed in the Occupation.

  • Occupational members met four basic criteria: 1) age (at least 25 years old), 2) tenure (had been in their occupation for at least 3 years), 3) satisfaction with their work, and 4) pursuit of typical occupational tasks.

  • Most occupational groups contained 200 or more members;

  • The mean and standard deviation for each group are 50 and 10, respectively.

Strong interest inventory
Strong Interest Inventory

  • General Occupational Themes—what am I like? Based on Holland’s themes.

  • Basic Interest Scales– what do I like?

  • Occupational Scales- who am I like?

Strong validity and reliability
Strong: Validity and reliability

  • Very high reliability for all scales

  • the older the group, the more reliable the test scores

  • Each type of scale has concurrent validity, that is that persons in an occupation score higher on their own scales.

  • 50-75% of individuals tested entered the occupations predicted by their profiles.

Strong cross cultural validity
Strong: Cross-cultural Validity

  • Few racial/ethnic differences found at the item level.

  • Even fewer differences were found at the scale or profile level.

  • It is important to note, though, that no research has examined whether interpretations are generalizable across cultures.

  • Gender differences greater than race/ethnic group differences.
