Assessments are attached for me please make up assessment results for partner student
A career counselor must experience career assessments as a test taker as well as a test administrator. As a result of the knowledge and skills developed up to this point in the course, you will be prepared to take, administer, and report the results of a personality assessment and interest inventory.
In this assignment, you will complete two career assessment inventories and assess your own results, as well as a classmate’s results to write assessment reports and reflection papers. You will work with the same classmate you worked with in RA—Intake Interview Project.
Part 1: Assessments
- Complete the Strong Interest Inventory (SII), interpret the results, and write an assessment report. Note: Consult with your professor for how to access the assessments.
- Complete the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment. Based on the scores, write a self-assessment report. Note: Consult with your professor for how to access the assessments.
- Provide your Strong Interest Inventory (SII) and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment results to your partner, who will provide a formal written assessment for your review and feedback.
Each assessment should include the following:
- What issues from the intake interview did you consider before administering the assessments to your client? What were the perceived strengths and barriers that you considered in conjunction with the assessments? What theoretical approach can best be used to conceptualize your client?
- Results of each assessment, utilizing actual assessment data to support the description.
- The results on the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) will produce a profile of General Occupational Themes. From this information, you will report your classmate’s/client’s interests, work activities, potential skills, and personal values in six broad areas: Realistic (R), Investigative (I), Artistic (A), Social (S), Enterprising (E), and Conventional (C).
- The results on the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) will produce a profile of Basic Interest Scales. From this information, you will report your classmate’s/client’s specific interest areas within the six General Occupational Themes, indicating areas likely to be most motivating and rewarding.
- The results on the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) will produce a profile of Occupational Scales. From this information, you will compare your classmate’s/client’s likes and dislikes with those of people who are satisfied working in various occupations, indicating any likely compatibility of interests.
- The results on the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) will produce a profile of Personal Style Scales. From this information, you will report your classmate’s/client’s preferences related to work style, learning, leadership, risk taking, and teamwork, providing insight into work and environments most likely to be of best fit.
- The results on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) will produce descriptions of each of the 16 types, including the description for your classmate’s/client’s type. From this information, you will report your classmate’s/client’s personal Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) 4 letter code. Your Interpretive Report also provides information on why the 16 types are different from one another. From this information, you will need to report how your classmate’s/client’s personal 4 letter Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) code is distinctive from the others. You will need to report your understanding of the basics of personality type and how type development will help you as the counselor and your classmate’s/client to gain a greater understanding of one’s self, of others, and the impact type has on one’s daily interactions.
- One of the outcomes of the career counseling process should be a plan for what the client will do to follow up on the results of the career counseling experience. If the client does not want to do any follow up, make sense of this outcome of the process. What progress did you make on the career development plan? What additional career information have you helped the client generate, such as O*NET? What options did the client explore? What kind of decisions did they make?
- A description of how relevant client cultural factors were considered when providing guidance regarding career and education opportunities so as to provide ethical, culturally competence career counseling services.

Part 2: Feedback
- Feedback from your classmate/client. After sharing your written assessment with your classmate/client, solicit feedback for how it was received, how accurate and helpful she or he found the report and what if any suggestions for improvements she or he might have. Similarly, you will provide the same feedback to your classmate with your reactions to the written assessment that she or he provides to you.
Part 3: Reflection Paper
- Reflection of the thoughts and feelings encountered during the interview and paper writing process. Reflection gives us a chance to step back from an event and ponder our personal experience with that event. Take an inward look, including your thoughts, feelings, memories, insights, perceptions, etc. Connect any personal experiences you may have had in your history with this interview process. Provide a clear and vivid description of the thoughts and emotions you experienced during the interview process.
- Description of how the experience met your expectations and how the experience may affect your future in career counseling.
- Identify important aspects of your experience during the interview and write these using the appropriate historical information and academic context to explain and interpret your reflections. Use your personal experiences and academic knowledge to evaluate your previous expectations for their appropriateness.
- Identify the learning outcomes of your experience. You might include a plan for how you will incorporate your new understandings into your future in career counseling.
Your final deliverable will be a Microsoft Word document, approximately 10–12 pages in length. Your paper should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
All your written assignments should reflect graduate-level writing skills and appropriate use of APA style, including in-text citations and references.
- By the due date assigned, save your document as M7_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.docx and submit it to the Submissions Area.
