Vocational Testing & Evaluation - Education

Vocational testing and evaluations are useful tools that are used to examine which career or occupation is the best match to a person’s abilities, interests and personality. Often used at the high school level to help graduating students decide on a post-secondary avenue, this assessment tool can also be used for adults contemplating a career change. Companies may use vocational testing to help place employees in roles that best suit their strengths, or to help start them at an appropriate level within the organization. Do you have a child at home who is starting to look at post-secondary education, but is having trouble choosing an education or career path? Are you unemployed, and need help deciding on which jobs to apply for that you are most likely to match well with? Or are you mid-way through your career, and would like to make a change? A vocational evaluation might be able to help point you in the right direction. Our resources are a great place to start.

Testing and Assessment in Counseling Practice

The primary purpose of this revision remains identical to that of the first edition--to show how key personality, cognitive/behavioral, and vocational tests/assessment procedures can be used by counselors in their work with clients. Too often, assessment books only provide the reader with information about tests and assessment procedures. They do not, however, take the next step--showing readers how these tests/assessment procedures can be used and integrated into the actual work of counseling. This revision is designed to fill that void. Chapter authors, all of whom are experts in their respective topic areas, share the theoretical and research backgrounds about a particular test/assessment procedure and then provide a case example or examples to show how assessment data can be meaningfully incorporated into the counseling process.
