    Social-cognitive factors of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics career interests
    (Springer, 2020-04-22) Mau, Wei-Cheng J.; Chen, Shr Jya; Lin, Chi-Chau
    Guided by the social cognitive career theory (SCCT), this study examines the factors influencing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) career interests and the career goals of college students in Taiwan (N = 320). A two-step modeling approach was used. First, the measurement part of the model was examined followed by a test of the full structural equation model. Both the measurement models and the path models were confirmed, suggesting a good fit of SCCT for Taiwanese college students. The correlations among SCCT constructs were in the expected directions. Implications for professional counseling and research are discussed.

    Assessing high school student's STEM career interests using a social cognitive framework
    (MDPI, 2019-06) Mau, Wei-Cheng J.
    This study investigated the psychometric properties of the Chinese version of the STEM Career Interest Survey (STEM-CCIS) with data from 590 high-school students in Taiwan. Measurement models based on Social-Cognitive Career Theory (SCCT) and STEM discipline-specific dimensions (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) were examined using confirmatory factor analyses. Findings from confirmatory factor analyses indicated that STEM-CCIS possesses adequate reliability and factorial validity, replicating the sound psychometric properties of the original English version of the STEM-CIS. Implications for the use of the STEM-CCIS are discussed.
