Transcript of Copy of Campbell Interest and Skill Survey

Helps individuals understand how their interests and self-reported skills relate to occupational and career environments.

For “real people in the real world” Campbell Interest and Skill Survey Orientation Scales (7) Occupational Scales (60) History of CISS 1. Influencing (leadership, politics, marketing, public speaking)
2. Organizing (managing, monitoring, organizing)
3. Helping (teaching, healing, counseling)
4. Creating (designing, artistic, literary, music)
5. aNalizing (math and science, experiments)
6. Producing (hands-on, farming, construction, mechanical crafts)
7. Adventuring (competing, risk-taking in athletic, police, military) Basic Interest and Skill Scales (29) Interest Scales:


L = Like

l = slightly like

d = slightly dislike

D = Like

D = STRONGLY DISLIKE Samples of employed workers who reported enjoying their work were collected from a wide range of occupations. Data was collected by mail, through use of occupational mailing lists, representing 65 Occupational areas with a median sample size of 75 persons per occupation. Response rate was not reported. Most respondents held a bachelor’s degree. There were 1790 women and 3435 men.

Combined, rather than separate, gender scales on the CISS. Decision was made to minimize attention to gender differences. Statistical procedures were used to balance gender differences. Authors: David Campbell, Susan Hyne, Dianne Nilsen

Obvious similarity to Strong Interest Inventory. David Campbell was a primary developer of both instruments.

Desire for new assessment to be more efficient, useful and socially sensitive. Interpreting the Results DEVELOP Special Scales (2) Academic Focus
Measures interest, motivation and self-confidence in formal academic pursuits.
Constructed by comparing responses from people from diverse educational background.

Measures interest and confidence in working with and through others
Completed by 3-5 observers who know an individual’s working style well Scales to Detect Errors (3) Like Holland’s 6 categories, with last being split into 2, to capture Adventuring Strengths References Campbell, D.P.

Qualifications: Self-interpretative and respondents can understand their results with little outside help. However, to use the CISS for educational or career planning, interpretation by a Masters-level counselor who has completed coursework in psychological testing and personal counseling is recommended How to Get it Educational institutions, human resource departments, training and development programs, individual career counseling or coaching, community interventions

Range: 15 years to adult (initially designed for use with individuals who are considering careers that require college degrees)

Minimum reading level: 6th grade

Administration time: 35-45 minutes Who is it for? Limitations relatively new
use of the label "skill"
limited general reference sample
not as relevant for clients not considering university
4 quadrants can be misleading
use of label "Avoid"
some small sample sizes for occupational scales solid psychometric and theoretical foundations
self-reported skills is a unique addition
strong validity and reliability data
6-point response format
prioritize areas to Pursue, Explore, Develop or Avoid
"Orientations" are user-friendly Unisex scales
Individual interpretation without counselor AVOID PURSUE EXPLORE high interest, high skill high interest, low skill low interest, low skill low interest, high skill "Both sides were worn down by the legal posturing, and both sides realized that the author-publisher relationship had become so poisonous that future collaboration was impossible; consequently, we severed our relationship. Stanford University Press took back all rights to the inventory, and I took back all rights to my name."
- David Campbell “I Often Hear Counselors Naturally Prefer Anchovies” Skills Scales:

E = EXPERT: Widely recognized as excellent in this area
G = Good. Have developed skills here
sa = slightly above average
Average, or a touch above
sb = slightly below average Average, or a touch below
P = Poor. Not very skilled here.

N = NONE. Have no skills in this area Response percentage check: Checks how many times the client has selected each of the 6 points. If they have selected one more than 80% or less than 3%, the pattern is DOUBTFUL

Inconsistency check: 10 pairs of closely related items. If 6 or more inconsistent pairs are selected, labeled as DOUBTFUL

Omitted items check: if the client misses over 20 questions its DOUBTFUL. Over 30 questions and it’s INVALID Reliability Internal consistency: study based on 4842 employed adults, median internal consistency reliability for Basic scales of .86 (interest) and .79 (skill). Reliability for Orientation scales had a median of .87 (interest & skill).
Test-retest reliability: study based on a sample of 324 individuals in 54 occupations who took the CISS twice, 3 months apart. Median reliability for Basic scales was .83 (interest) and .79 (skill). Median reliability for Orientation scales was .87 (interest) and .81 (skill). Median reliability for Occupational scales was .87 (interest) and .79 (skill). Validity study based on 5,391 working adults, median correlation is .68. Data from three samples: 88 high school students, 157 college students, and 5,391 employed adults. Median correlations were .65, .70, and .70, respectively. 5 Scales
