CDMSE refers to individuals' belief that they can successfully perform vocational decision-making tasks, such as self-appraisal, goal selection, gathering of career information, problem solving, and planning for the future (Betz & Luzzo, 1996).
Although it is known that EI and CDMSE are positively related, the path through which they are linked is still unclear, because no studies have investigated the indirect link between these two variables.
We found statistically significant positive correlations of PP with CA, CDMSE with CA, and PP with CDMSE.
As predicted, the interaction between PP and EP significantly affected CDMSE indicating that the direct effect of PP on CDMSE was significantly moderated by EP ([beta] = -.
Algunos estudios han mostrado relaciones significativas entre las puntuaciones de la CDMSE
y la actividad de exploracion para encontrar carreras (Blustein, 1989), las habilidades y las actitudes (Luzzo, 1996), la indecision vocacional (Robbins, 1985, Taylor y Betz, 1983, Taylor y Popma, 1990), y la identidad vocacional y la autoestima (Robbins, 1985).
De acuerdo con Hackett (1995), los resultados de investigacion han apoyado muy claramente la utilidad de la CDMSES para predecir la indecision vocacional, particularmente en los aspectos de falta de estructura para decidir, asi como en la falta de confianza en las habilidades para elegir carrera.
Studies have also explored the nature of the relationship between CDMSE
is defined as the degree of confidence in one's ability to successfully perform specific tasks and engage in specific behaviors in the course of career decision making, such as self-appraisal, gathering occupational information, selecting goals, planning for the future, and solving problems (Betz, Klein, & Taylor, 1996; Di Fabio et al.
On the overall CDMSE
, there was no significant main effect of counseling intervention (p > .
As expected, CDMSE
is positively related to career decidedness.
Over the years, both long and short forms of the CDMSES have been shown to be reliable measures of self-efficacy in this area (e.
La forma breve del CDMSES contiene 25 reactivos (Betz, Klein y Taylor, 1996) y fue desarrollada mediante la eliminacion de cinco de los diez reactivos de cada una de las subescalas de la prueba original.
