Strong Reviews

The Highlands Ability Battery is a powerful, high impact and gold-standard tool that parents and high school students will provide high value.  

All students receive top career lists and arrive at a Plan A and Plan B career.  This brings growth in confidence, a release of being unsure, anxiety, being afraid of making a mistake, or having no idea at all.  Students can move forward with more motivation and ease in decisions for their major and college targets.  


Growth in self-understanding and of others.

Learning about one's unique, God-given natural abilities. 

Finding many "best-fit" career matches.

Discovering top skills that need to be used in a career to find the most success and fulfillment - and how not using these skills can be the root of job dissatisfaction.

Customized reports of 50+ pages include percentile scores, ability attributes, interpretation, and top career matches based on the combination of scores.  Each list of careers has hyperlinks to O*Net profiles. 

A group 2 hour debrief furthers the learning to promote student's understanding and highlights.  Parents are encouraged to attend the debrief meeting.

Why This Assessment?


I did quite a bit of research on leading career surveys and assessments out there.  I found 3 promising candidates and took these tests to compare my experience with other authorities.  I use the Highlands Ability Battery because is clearly stands out in-depth, accuracy, and impact on student plans.  The norm is also primarily working adults instead of a majority of high school students.  


Many of these online reports go in and out the other ear of the student because they do not involve a teacher or person to debrief, and explain which of their scores are a big deal, and which are not. We all know numbers get attention, so students need to see an objective scoring of their percentiles.  We also know students need to have follow-up discussions and decisions, so they gain confidence in selecting a major and college with a strong program.


How Can This Fit Into Your Program?

Consider "career planning" to be a summer school program, integrated into your program, or a project students take on their own as a planning tool for high school and college.       


Pricing rates are discounted for groups.  Let's talk about your ideas and see what is possible.


I've refined my own processes and feel this is a package worth your review that will bring unsolicited appreciation and praise from parents and students.
