No Registration to Take the Test
Adults and colleges take the tests on YourFreeCareerTest, but many school districts also deliver this test. To take a test, a visitor will never have to register or provide their email/name or other identifying information.
When a test takers view their results, they can do the following:
- Print the results using their browser’s File > Print option.
- Write down or copy/paste the results link that is given so it can be accessed later.
- Email the results to up to 3 email addresses. This site does not collect the email address. The email provided simply is added to a script that sends out the email. The email is not stored in any database of any kind.
Sometimes we are asked if we can retrieve test results. Because we do not store an email or name associated with the results, we’d have no way to actually look up a particular person’s results. It’s recommended to save the results two different ways to be save. Such as printing the results, writing down the sharable link, or emailing it to more than one email address. Most times when asked if we can retrieve someone’s results, it is because they only emailed it to one email address and the email address had a typo or was wrong.
The worst case scenario, someone may need to take the test again. It takes 2-3 minutes.
Who the tests are for
The tests are helpful for everyone: adults and students. From our statistics, many middle school, high school, colleges, and work force centers use the test. It is also taken by other people around the world.
That said, originally the test was created with students in mind. It is quick (takes less than 3 minutes for many students). The questions are also worded so students with a range of reading levels may take the test (including ESOL students).
Students using screen readers or keyboards can take the free career test. The online career test is also accessible on tablets and iPads, not to mention smart phones. There are many smart phones on the market so the test is not guaranteed to work on all phones.
How was the Career Test Created?
This is not a psychological test. Nor are these tests an indication whether an individual would excel in the areas indicated on the test. These are interest-based tests and a wonderful way for people to discover their likes and dislikes and contemplate what they may want to do in the future.
Like other tests, it uses an algorithm to match question responses to test categories. There are multiple questions that relate to any given category.
We use many resources to create content on the site, but we mainly use resources from the U.S. government, educational sites, and organizations. We especially use the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, O*Net Online, and Career One Stop.
