In order to determine appropriate vocational options for an individual, this assessment considers degrees of impairment, functional academic abilities, transferable skills, aptitudes, interests, job search skills, and loss of earnings. A full test battery is administered by a certified psychometrist and a comprehensive report that includes labour market information is provided.
The test battery may include any or all of the following:
- Standardized academic and aptitude tests such as the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT-3) and the General Aptitude Test Battery (GATB)
- Job specific aptitude tests such as the Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test and manual dexterity tests
- Interest tests may include the Holland Self-Directed Inventory and/or Jackson Vocational Interest Survey; non-verbal and pictorial inventories such as the Wide Range Interest-Opinion Test are available for non-readers
- Personality tests such as the 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire highlight issues that may affect work performance
