The purpose of the researcher was to investigate the effectiveness of DISCOVER. The independent variables were: type of deliver, gender, classification, age and grade point average. The dependent variables were Certainty and Indecisive scores of the Career Decision Scale. The original scale consisted of 48 subjects. Four of the subjects did not complete the study. Of the 44 subjects, 12 were male and 32 were female. The instruments employed were the Career Decision Scale and a Student Information Form. The design consisted of a pretest, posttest, and delayed posttest. The study was conducted at Fort Hays State University, a four-year Liberal Arts college in Western, Kansas. Nine composite null hypotheses were tested. A total of 18 comparisons were made. Of the 18 comparisons made, no was statistically significant at the .05 level; therefore, no associations were found between any independent and dependent variables.
