Student Assessments Resource

Already feeling some pressure on deciding on a college major or a career path? Don’t worry--many high school students and college freshmen often feel the same way. Since this is so common, many people have developed interest assessments or career inventory tests to help others develop a better understanding of their strengths, weaknesses, and interests. It is important to realize that these assessments will not tell you what to do with your future. After all, that is an important decision that can only be made by one person: you! However, the tests will give you plenty of insight into your work habits, your personality, and will help to highlight your strengths as a person. For example, if the assessment makes you realize that you work best alone, you might find that jobs with a lot of group projects are not for you. In other words, interest assessments help us to figure out what types of careers we would best fit in like a career proceeding a masters degree in alternative medicine. Try out some of the tests below and compare their results to start deciding on the type of future career or college major that is best for you. The best way to follow up with these tests is to discuss the results with a guidance counselor, teacher, or advisor. It may even help to talk to some professionals (they could even be friends or family members) to learn more about their work and to find out whether you might like to do something similar in the future.
