Abstract

As there was no existing, psychometrically sound scale that directly assessed the discrepancies that young people experience between individual-set career goals and parent-set career goals, we developed and provided initial validation for a 15-item scale for use with young adults. In Study 1, items were developed, reviewed by experts, and administered to a sample of first year, undergraduate Indonesian students (N = 426, M age = 18.42 years). We used exploratory factor analysis to reduce the number of items and assess the factor structure, and used confirmatory factor analyses on a hold-out sample to assess this underlying structure. We then provided evidence for construct validity. Recommendations for use in research and practice are discussed. Keywords: career goals, discrepancies, parents, scale development, young people
