#5431 Now updated, this instrument provides an easy way for people with limited reading ability or special needs to explore their career interests and find a job that fits. Test-takers identify their occupational interests by using pictures of people at work rather than text-based items.
Test-takers are presented with 36 sets of three pictures and choose which of the three portrayed occupations seems most interesting. Based on the number and kind of pictures selected, PICS creates a profile of the individual which then can lead directly to career information and potential job matches.
The assessment takes less than 15 minutes to complete and score, and is suited to both genders and all backgrounds, from middle school to adults. It can be self-administered and self-scored, given individually or in groups, and is ideally suited to today’s changing workforce.
