This test is widely used (nearly a million administered), especially with culturally different and educationally deprived individuals, to identify vocational and avocational interests. It requires a minimum of language because items ask the examinee to simply circle the one picture in a series of three that depicts the vocational or avocational scene he or she prefers.
Extensively researched with high reliability and validity, the inventory can be used from Grade 8 through high school, college, and adulthood. (Occupational norms are provided.) A Motivation Questionnaire can be administered separately to explore the motivation behind occupational choices. The scale is easy to administer individually or to groups, and it can be scored in only a few minutes.
