Administered the English and Spanish forms of the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory to 94 bilingual Hispanic high school students (mean age 15.5 yrs) to test the correspondence of interests of Spanish-speaking clients to the structure of interests proposed by J. L. Holland (1973). Both versions produced 6 General Occupational Theme scores (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional). Analysis of the 12 scores was made using 8 different models and confirmatory factor analysis. Results show that a model that postulated both method and trait factors was a reasonable structure for these data; trait factors that were formed supported the basic Holland model of the structure of interests. It is suggested that the Spanish version of the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory may be used with Spanish-speaking clients. (41 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
