The Dutch version of the Career Adapt-Abilities Scale-Belgium Form (CAAS-Belgium) consists of four scales, each with six items, which measure concern, control, curiosity, and confidence as psychosocial resources for managing occupational transitions, developmental tasks, and work traumas. A pilot survey was administered to 700 high school, college, and university students in order to assess the construct validity of the CAAS-Belgium. Internal consistency estimates for the subscale and total scores ranged from satisfactory to excellent. The factor structure was identical to that of the CAAS-International, which was computed for combined data from 13 countries, and equivalent across educational levels. As expected based on cultural and institutional factors, the CAAS scores for Belgium were slightly lower than those for most of the other countries participating in the project. CAAS-Belgium scores did not vary with age or educational level; small differences were found between male and female respondents.
