Assessments Used at AACC

The Career and Transfer Resource Center can assist in building bridges between what you know about yourself and what you know about occupations and the world of work by means of interest inventories, test batteries, or computer-assisted career guidance systems.  With the information from these assessments, Career Counselors can help you to formulate career alternatives.

Here is a list of some of the assessment tools that are used at Anne Arundel Community College:

  • Self Directed Search - [Paper & Pencil]
    Self-administered test that helps individuals find the occupations that best suit their interests and skills. 
  • Strong Interest Inventory - [Paper & Pencil]
    Measures interests in a broad range of occupations, work activities, leisure activities, and school subjects.
  • Myers Briggs Type Indicator - [Paper & Pencil]
    Helps counselor/career professionals/consultants improve work and professional relationships, increase productivity, and identify leadership and interpersonal communication preferences for clients. 
  • FOCUS 2 - [Online] Helps individuals to assess their interests, abilities and work-related values, explore occupations and majors.

Results of these assessments will be interpreted for you by one of our trained Career Counselors.
