Abstract/Description: The Career State Inventory (CSI) was developed initially as the Career Decision State Survey (CDSS) to facilitate research and practice in vocational psychology and career development. The primary purpose of this measure was to assess readiness for career problem solving and decision making. The CSI was developed by the authors working through Florida State University’s Center for the Study of Technology in Counseling and Career Development. Career practitioners and researchers may freely use the instrument with proper citation of the instrument and credit as noted below. Sale of the CSI for profit is not authorized by the authors or FSU. A link to the CSI and the CSI Manual is provided at DigiNole the Florida State University Digital Library: https://fsu.digital.flvc.org/islandora/search/tech%20center?type=edismax&collection=fsu%3Aresearch_repository. CSI Manual topics include (a) an examination of the Career Decision State construct as a state of consciousness through the perspective of cognitive information processing theory (CIP); (b) prior research examining the concurrent validity of the CSI in relation to similar constructs; (c) procedures for administering and scoring the instrument; and (d) ways in which CSI results could be implemented and interpreted in the process of career service delivery or training of career services providers.
