Abstract

The authors compared 2 approaches to predicting competitive employment after the provision of vocational rehabilitation (VR) services: multiple regression analysis and a simplified scale. The 2 prediction techniques yielded nearly identical results when applied to an independent, cross-validation sample. Practical applications of the simplified prediction procedure to VR client selection, resource allocation, and counseling practice are discussed. Similarities between the current investigation and a study reported by Kunce and Miller (1972) are also discussed.
