Two hundred students studying in 7 schools and 1 college in Coimbatore city completed the Career Decision Difficulty Questionnaire between the age group of 14 to 20 years. The responses were collected and the data was subjected to statistical analysis to test internal consistency. The Cronbach’s and Spearman Brown Coefficient value shows high reliability. The results indicated CDDQ as a reliable instrument for assessing career decision making difficulties among the students of Indian population. Further study among student population in other states of India is recommended for validation.
