Measuring Vocational Interests on SETPOINT Dimensions.pdf
Vocational interest research has seen a resurgence in organizational research, given that it is predictive of key work outcomes. Current research has focused on vocational interests at the broad-band interest level. While the RIASEC model has been the typology for broad interest assessment of six interest types, more recent work with the setpoint model suggests eight interest dimensions need to be assessed. To date, there is no assessment tool available for the broad setpoint dimensions. This current study focuses on developing three short scales to assess the eight dimensions of the setpoint model and complements current assessments with three shorter but reliable and valid measurement tools. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
