Designed especially to measure career interests in people who have little or no English skills and/or limited reading and writing abilities. It is based on John Holland's Theory of Types. But its video administration requires no reading skills on the part of test takers, so it is an excellent alternative to language-based assessments and very good for group administration. This is the only program of its kind.
How the Assessment Works
Test takers watch videos of various occupations, 66 total. Each test taker will then fill out a scoring sheet. After viewing each occupation they circle numbers on a scale of 1 to 5 corresponding to the degree to which they like the occupation.
After rating all occupations, columns are totaled for scores. Each column represents one of John Holland's occupational types: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional.
The program was tested extensively in programs where the majority of clients were non-readers or did not speak English.
