Evidences of validity of the of the Berufsbilder-Test (BBT-Br): a study with undergraduate students


Intervention in Vocational Guidance is intended to enable individuals to become autonomous and acquire professional maturity, helping them to construct life projects. Psychological assessment instruments are among techniques that can be used by psychologists in Vocational Guidance processes, provided they present appropriate technical and scientific characteristics. In this context, this study focuses on the Berufsbilder Test (BBT-Br). The objective is to investigate undergraduate students, since most recent studies using this instrument have addressed secondary school students. Approximately 800 senior undergraduates, both genders, attending eight different fields (according to CAPES) in public and private schools will be invited to participate. The following instruments will be applied collectively in classrooms: a) the socio-professional questionnaire; (b) the career commitment scale and (c) the BBT-Br. Descriptive and inferential analyzes will be performed and qualitative analysis of case studies from different areas. This study is expected to broaden and improve production of knowledge in the context of Vocational Guidance intervention processes, more specifically in relation to psychological assessment instruments.
