A powerful springboard for career planning.

Our Assessments

Effective career exploration and planning starts with finding out what you like to do (interests), what you’re confident doing (skills), and what’s important to you in the workplace (work values).

The Kuder career assessments are regarded as best-in-class for their validity and reliability. Based on ongoing research dating back to 1938, our assessments provide accurate results that serve as a powerful springboard for career planning. Our assessments don’t define who you are or what your career should be, but they’re essential in helping you narrow your search and consider options you may not have previously considered.

““I can’t look at your end-of-grade test in science and, based on performance, gauge whether you’re interested in science. I can only see if you were good (or bad) at it on that day. An interests assessment brings that insight.””

The critical three assessments for career choice.

Experts agree that measuring career interests, skills confidence, and work values plays a critical role in the career development process.

Brief, user-friendly, and directive format. 

Each assessment takes 4-10 minutes to complete and can be started and paused at any time. Results are aligned with careers, career pathways, and courses of study, displayed in easy to read, visual reports.

Customizable to your needs.

All assessments are available in English, Spanish, and Arabic. And they can be localized, translated, and aligned to unique cluster or pathway systems for your custom online career planning program.


Reliable and valid, giving you the confidence to start career planning.

  • Unlike a career quiz or career test, our assessments undergo psychometric analysis to ensure reliability and validity. 
  • Ideal for schools, career centers, and workforce development centers.
  • Immediate scoring for users and reporting for administrators.

Standards-based to ensure quality.

  • Kuder assessments adhere to the latest technical standards for reliability, validity, and fairness by the Joint Committee: American Psychological Association, National Council on Measurement in Education, and American Educational Research Association.
  • They also meet the guidelines for Translating and Adapting Tests established by the International Test Commission.

Aptitude Tests and Career Choice
Aptitude Tests and Career Choice

The Kuder Coach weighs in on a hot topic. 

Is an aptitude test a good way to narrow down career options? A good place to explore that question is with another question: What are aptitudes? 

Did you know?

Exposure to careers has little to do with the results of interests assessments.

Interests assessments don't actually measure students’ interests in careers. Rather, interests assessments like the Kuder Career Interests Assessment measure a user's interests in common daily activities (e.g., tutor young children, fix a broken piece of furniture, write a story, participate in a class debate, read about volcanoes) that they are familiar with and/or have exposure to (e.g., via TV).

Career recommendations are made based on type of common activities of interest, not familiarity with specific careers, nor career-specific activities. So, exposure to careers has little to do with results of interests assessments.
