Abstract

The purpose of the study was to test the classification system for career decision difficulties of college students in a Chinese culture. Five hundred twenty-one college students completed the Chinese version of the Career Decision-Making Difficulties Questionnaire. Data obtained were analyzed by multivariate analysis of variance, factor analysis, and a clustering algorithm, ADDTREE. The results indicated significant differences between decided and undecided students on their perceptions of career difficulties,.(10,464) =.729. The results of factor analysis and the ADDTREE analysis indicated that the three-group classification system for career decision-making difficulties was generally supported. However, for the undecided students in the process of career decision making, the factors before and during the process were mixed.
