Product Details

The CAI Enhanced Version assessment compares an individual's occupational interests to 100+ specific careers that reflect a broad range of technical and professional positions in today's workforce.

Benefits

  • Teach students to focus on the patterns of interest that are important in making educational and occupational choices.
  • Identify career directions and major areas of study for high school and college students.
  • Advise individuals who are re-entering the workforce, considering a career change, or who have been displaced.

Features

The CAI Enhanced Version 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 111 occupations requiring varying amounts of post-secondary education.
  • 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.
  • The inventory closely matches the distribution of professional and nonprofessional jobs in the labor force, making it well-suited for assessing groups with a variety of career aspirations.
  • Reference sample consisted of 900 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.

Select a question below to see the response.

Test Content

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 covers 91 occupations requiring 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 requiring various levels of education. The Enhanced Version therefore meets the needs of both non-college-bound and college-bound individuals.

 

Administration

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

The Enhanced Version.

Can the interpretive report be given to the client?

Yes.

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 profiling the client's results.

What are the differences in occupational coverage between the Strong Interest Inventory and the Career Assessment Inventory-Enhanced?

Both inventories sample a broad range of occupations. The Career Assessment Inventory-Enhanced Version instrument more closely matches the distribution of professional and nonprofessional jobs in the labor force and is therefore preferred when assessing groups with a variety of career aspirations (e.g., complete high school populations).
