Product Details

CAI compares an individual's vocational interests to 90+ specific careers that reflect a range of positions in today's workforce – including skilled trades and technical and service professions – that require 2 years or less of post-secondary training.

Benefits

  • Guide students to focus on the patterns of interest that are important in making educational and occupational choices.
  • Explore new career options with clients in vocational rehabilitation settings or one-stop career centers.
  • Advise individuals who are re-entering the workforce, in workforce development, considering a career change, or who have been displaced.
  • Clarify vocational opportunities for individuals in Tech Prep and School to Work programs.

Features

CAI has been updated to provide additional occupations, new suggested readings, new vocational codes, and career resources on the web.

  • Basic interest, occupational, and nonoccupational scales for 91 occupations enable the counselor to explore a variety of career possibilities with the client.
  • Graphic and narrative test reports can be shared with the client and the narrative report provides a 3-page counselor's summary.
  • Combined gender scales allow for the broadest interpretation of survey results.
  • Uses occupational themes based on the widely-accepted RIASEC model to assist in the interpretation and explanation of interest scores.
  • Reference samples consisted of 1,200+ employed adults and students.

Sample Reports

Profile reports provide a graphical depiction of the individual's score on each scale, a list of occupations to investigate, and a page of career resources. Interpretive reports present several pages of graphs and narrative statements that explain the significant score elevations on each scale.

What is the difference between the Vocational Version and the Enhanced Version of the Career Assessment Inventory instrument?

The Vocational Version has 305 items and 91 occupations that require little or no post-secondary education. It provides options for the trade-oriented individual or for immediate entry into the workforce. The Enhanced Version has 370 items and covers 111 occupations that require various levels of education, meeting the needs of both non-college-bound and college-bound individuals.

If I want to give one assessment to everyone (college-bound and non-college-bound), which assessment would you recommend?

The Enhanced Version.

Does the Career Assessment Inventory instrument provide a counselor's summary?

Yes. When the interpretive report is generated, the counselor will receive a counselor's summary, which is a profile of the client's results. The client may be given the interpretive report results.
