This site offers a nice and growing collection of career and personality assessments, including The Career Values Scale, Career Interest Inventory, Career Competency Explorer, and The Personality Index.
The free results you get after taking the assessments are a bit sparse, but the comprehensive results you can purchase are a very good value at $8.95. (No comprehensive report is available for the Career Competency Explorer.)
Mac users may have difficulty with these tests, as we did, but the technical support and customer service were exceptional when we reported our troubles. We got a speedy and cordial response.
And, when we took the assessments on a Windows-based machine, we were impressed with the easy-to-use interface.
According to the site, testingroom.com instruments are validated, reliable, and research based. They are developed by psychologists and follow the stringent development guidelines of the American Psychological Association.
