Description

The
Self-Directed Search Career Explorer Self-Assessment and Careers (SDS)

is appropriate for middle and junior high school students who wish to
explore their interests and plan for their career. Students generate
a combination code based on their interest areas. With this code they
can explore various careers in their interest areas. The SDS is based
on Holland’s Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising,
and Conventional codes. Administration takes about 45 minutes.

    This is something that I have not had a lot of experience with.  This informal self-assessment does a decent job of getting students to think metacognitively about where their thinking is in relation to how much they know about job skills.  These are the job skills they will need to have for future careers, and sometimes students don't have this big picture in mind.  I wasn't able to get many samples of what these assessments looked like, and I don't feel like they are very comprehensive to cover the transitions of every kind of student.

    I like that this is focused on junior high and middle school students.  It is nice that it is a quick survey that can be completed within 30 minutes and scored easily.  I would definitely use this as a starting place to help students discover what they may be interested in.

    This informal assessment is based on John Holland's Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional codes. It is designed to address middle and junior high school students who wish to explore their interests and plan for their career. This assessment is easy to administer and does not take a significant amount of time to complete. The link does not provide a visual sample of the assessment and it appears to that it does not provide a comprehensive overview of the transitional needs of every student.
