If you are new to your job and find they have CareerScope, or if you need a refresher on using CareerScope, there is an excellent User Guide under the Help menu item in the CareerScope Management System.  If you need a very short version of how to use CareerScope, here it is:

There are just three CareerScope commands you might use when administering the assessment:

  1. EXIT – Ctrl-E - - You may exit any time except in the middle of a test. If you do exit during the middle of a test, that test must be re-taken later.
  2. Go BACK - Ctrl-B from the "ASK A STAFF MEMBER FOR HELP" screen if they pause for too long or ask for help.
  3. PRACTICE Again – Ctrl-P - repeats the current practice section.

General Points to Remember:

  1. Suitable for anyone (middle school through adults) with fourth grade reading level and the ability to use a computer mouse.
  2. One-hour, self-administered assessment.
  3. They will need pencil and paper for the math-related sub-tests (no calculators).
  4. The assessment session can be split into two or more sessions by simultaneously pressing Cntrl and E (preferably between sub-tests). They will re-start at the beginning of the next test if they enter their same ID number at start-up.
  5. If the person taking the assessment is interrupted during an aptitude sub-test, press Cntrl and E so that their results are not locked-in as the sub-test "times out" – otherwise their low response rate will be locked into the test results.

To administer CareerScope to an individual:

  1. Help them click on the CareerScope Task (CS TASK) icon for a 5-minute multimedia orientation - or bypass the Intro by pressing Escape.
  2. Remind them to read and follow the directions carefully - watch over their shoulder for the first few minutes to see if they are reading and following directions okay.
  3. If they are obviously doing well, you might be able to go do other work for an hour – but stay within earshot.  If they are having any trouble with reading or following the directions, you might need to stay close and check on them as they start each subtest.  Use Ctrl and P to repeat the practice sessions if they appear unsure of what to do.

To print out a CareerScope report:

  1. Click on the CareerScope Management System (CS MGMT)icon:
  2. Enter the Password (if you do not know the password, the serial number on the CareerScope CD case will also work – enter with no spaces, case sensitive).
  3. With the default Search by last name button selected, type the first letter or two of your client’s last name and click Find. Your client's full name should appear.
  4. Click Print Report (assuming you are connected to a printer and the selected reports already have the Configuration you want - e.g. you might want Print Job Titles selected for the Assessment Profile report).

It's that easy!  If you have questions about using or interpreting CareerScope, call John Reeves at 800-421-1342 or email john@theworksuite.com
