Abstract
The aim of this study is to determine whether or not the Career Path Appreciation (CPA) is cultural unbiased. The use of assessment instruments in South Africa has been criticised, because it is said that they are largely based on the values and knowledge of overseas instruments, which are considered to be less valid for South Africa’s various cultural groups. In this study, an Asian, black, coloured and white group were included to determine the cultural equivalence of the CPAs measurement outcomes. The results indicate that the CPA measurement outcomes are not biased and are, therefore, equivalent for groups of diverse cultural backgrounds.
