Why should we consider the results of career assessment?

According to the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (2005), in order to perform at optimal levels in all educational settings, all youth need to participate in educational programs grounded in standards, clear performance expectations, and graduation exit options based upon meaningful, accurate, and relevant indicators of student learning and skills. One such option is ensuring that youth have access to an assessment system that includes multiple measures. In addition, the Collaborative also emphasizes that career preparation and work-based learning experiences are essential in order for youth to form and develop aspirations and to make informed choices about their careers. A method by which to achieve this is to conduct career assessments to help identify students’ school and post-school preferences and interests.
