types of assessments


Types of Assessments:

Interest and Personality Inventories

This type of assessment is among the most popular tools to help with career planning. Interests are likes and preferences–things that you enjoy. Research has been done and indicates that if you choose a major based on your personality and interests, you are more likely to:

  • Earn higher grades
  • Stick with your choice of major throughout graduation
  • Be more satisfied and successful in your career.

Assessments offered by Career Services include: CFNC Interest Profiler, MBTI, and Strong Interest Inventory

Values Inventories

Aspects of your career choice that are important to you and your satisfaction are called work values.  Your values help shape how you view yourself and the world around you. It is an important factor that can help determine career decisions and career satisfaction.

The assessment offered by Career Services is the Life Values inventory (LVI)

Career Development Inventories

Career Development has been used to describe the process by which individuals make career choices appropriate to their age and stage of development. Career development is very important and sometimes difficult with adolescents. Adolescents have to make tough decisions as they transition to college life and it may be difficult for them to integrate their interests, skills, and abilities into career goals.
