to that found for the English version when it is used in the United States ( Fouad & Hansen, 1984).

In a more theoretical vein, the Spanish version of the Strong also has been used to study the generalizability of Holland's theory to other cultures with results that support the hypothesis that the theory is cross-culturally robust ( Fouad, Cudeck, & Hansen, 1984).


SUMMARY

The 1985 revision of the Strong Interest Inventory extends the long history of research begun by E. K. Strong, Jr. in the 1920s. The widespread use of the inventory and the feedback from counseling and research psychologists have led to continued development of the inventory and to refinements in the guidelines for interpretation.

The Occupational Criterion Samples and Women- and Men-in-General Samples, used to construct and standardize the 1985 scales, are the best that ever have been collected for the development of Strong Inventory scales. Characteristics of the samples were studied carefully to ensure that they are representative, and each occupation is represented by a national sample. The extension of the Occupational Scales to include more nonprofessional or vocational /technical occupations should make the Strong Inventory useful with a broad spectrum of the population. The carefully developed General Reference Sample (Women- and Men-in-General) will allow more conclusive research to be conducted on the similarity or dissimilarity of interests of women and men. And most importantly, the 1985 revision meets the guidelines established by the National Institute of Education (NIE) for sex fairness in career interest inventories ( Diamond, 1975).
