The COPS-PIC can be utilized by individuals with motivational or language difficulties to measure job activity interests. It uses pictures to provide job activity interest scores, yielding measurement of the 14 COPY system clusters for non-readers. Spanish translations available.

    In my opinion, this is an informal assessment.  It gives an overview of the student's interests and preferences.  It provides pictures for non-readers.

    In my opinion this is an informal assessment.  I would use this in my classroom as a great tool for non-readers, or studnets who are low readers to have the ability to take an assessment that allows them the chance to explore some of their different interests, in possible careers in the future.

    The COPS-PIC is an excellent informal resource that scores using pictures for students that are non-readers.  It covers 14 different clusters to keep things simple for students who are not motviated or have language difficulties in order go guage preferences for transitional students.  I like how it also provides individual counseling with college students or adults, to make the transition for high school students seem more tangible.

    Similar to the Picture Interest Career Survey (PICS), this interest inventory uses only pictures to help a student narrow down his or her interstest in a career.  It seems like it would be a good starting point for those students who answer the "What do you want to do for a career?" question with "I have no idea".  It's also very helpful that it only involves pictures.  This is beneficial for non-readers as well as readers who may be more visually stimulated.

    The COPS-PIC is designed for students who are non-readers.  It is an informal assessment tool that helps a student identify his or her interest in different careers based on pictures.  It addresses 14 career areas that include: professional science, skilled science, professional technology, skilled technology, consumer economics, outdoor, professional business, skilled business, clerical, communication, professional arts, skilled arts, professional service and skilled service.  This assessment is most effective with visually stimulated students who may have motivational and language challenges.  It is specifically beneficial in transitional planning and allows educators to provide individual counseling for college students and adults.
