VOCATIONAL TESTING

Vocational interest and aptitude testing assist clients in determining an appropriate career field for their future. Our Testers are trained at administering, scoring, and interpreting the following tests:

  • Career Scope

  • WRAT5

  • Keirsey Temperament

An important part of career counseling and understanding each client’s unique needs is revealing a client’s specific interests and aptitudes. This process of discovery can be an invaluable tool for divulging insight into a person’s personality traits that match up to workplaces they would thrive in, as well as demonstrating strengths in their written, mathematical, and language abilities. We utilize this information to present career options that are within the client’s interests and aptitudes creating a successful career transition.

Our highly trained staff administer the following battery of tests to unveil client’s interests and aptitudes to select an appropriate career transition plan:

 

Career Scope: This assessment measures aptitudes based on general, verbal, numerical, spatial, form perception, clerical perception, motor coordination, finger dexterity, and manual dexterity. Additionally, it draws interests based on twelve interest areas as described in the Guide for Occupational Exploration (GOE) and elsewhere. The Career Scope further helps cross-reference interest and aptitudes to identify careers that a client would be successful within.

 

WRAT5: The Wide Range Achievement Test, Fifth Edition is a nationally norm-referenced test that measures and monitors fundamental word reading, spelling and math skills, and sentence comprehension for individuals ranging from kindergarten to adulthood.

 

Keirsey Temperament: The Keirsey Temperament is a self-assessed personality questionnaire designed to help people better understand themselves and others.
