About Career Development Questionnaire

The Career Development Questionnaire (CDQ) of Langley (1990), an instrument based on the theory of Crites (1978) and Super (1962) was used to measure career maturity. The CDQ consists of 100 items comprising five scales, namely Self Information (20 items), Decision-making (20 items), Career Information (20 items), Integration of Self Information with Career Information (20 items) and Career Planning (20 items). Each of the five scales relates to a common dimension of career maturity (Langley, du Toit & Herbst, 1996).
The reliability of the CDQ for different language groups (English, Afrikaans and African languages) ranges from 0,66 to 0,82, and for first-year university students (University of Zululand and RAU) from 0,57 to 0,83. An internal consistency coefficient of 0,90 was obtained for the total score. Thus the scales are satisfactory if used for guidance purposes. The intercorrelations of the scales were also computed.
They ranged from 0,45 (between the Self Information Scale and the Career Planning Scale) to 0,65 (between the Career Information and the Career Planning Scale). The various CDQ sub-samples of the original research project consisted of first-year university students and Standard 8 and 10 pupils (Langley, du Toit & Herbst, 1996).
