    I LOVE using these informal assessments in my classroom!!  The reporoducibles include assessments in: interests & preferences, abilities & skills, career exploration, and job search & securing.  These assessments could be used for classroom lessons or "brain boosters" to use at the beginning of the class period.  I would reccommend the other 2 books related to Employment and Career Planning: Independent Living and Community Partcipation and Postsecondary Education and Training.  These assessments are handy when completing a transition plan.

    I like the variety of informal assessments included in this book.  It's nice to have an extended description of the question along with the options for answers.  The text is easy to read; the sections are blocked nicely and the bold type helps guide you through the assessment.

    This is an excellent compilation of informal assessments.  It is well organized, reproducible, easy to administer and easy to understand.  Its assessments help students identify their interests, preferences, abilities, skills, career exploration, job search and securing.  I especially like the extended descriptions for each question as well as possible answers.  This would be excellent to use in collaboration with the other Pro-Ed assessment tools and can provide educations with a wealth of information about student’s vocational interests.
