The Career Interest Inventory for Schools (CII for Schools) has been developed as a tool for career guidance in the school-age population. The instrument provides information about the goals of students, as well as their interests in a variety of post-secondary school subjects and fields of work. This information can then be related to careers. 
Specifically, CII for Schools consists of statements that describe job activities as well as school subjects and activities. The results can help canditates explore careers, educational choices and job opportunities and to understand the skills and experiences needed to achieve goals.

The statements have been selected to represent a wide range of subjects available in college programmes and when combined with job interests, the CII for Schools can be used to help students explore both educational and career opportunities. 

Although the CII for Schools can be used as a stand-alone instrument, it can also be used to complement DAT for Schools as a means of linking vocational interests with aptitudes for different kinds of employment. 

The CII for Schools has been specifically designed for convenience and simplicity of use. Its high quality format provides for easy administration and enables results to be interpreted quickly and with confidence. In addition, machine-scorable record forms are available to make scoring even easier and quicker for you. You can choose to operate this system in-house or through our Bureau Service. 

Also, our customised Windows® system DAT/CII for Schools Interpreter (developed by the University of Hertfordshire), is now available for use. Features include raw score conversion, profiling and the provision of detailed narrative reports at the press of a button. These reports can then be easily imported into a word processor for editing before a hard copy is requested. 

As with our narrative report-writing software the machine-score system can be run in-house or through our Bureau Service.
