(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

More about using the CareerScope Management System:
Looking at the Top Menu Items:
File - Mostly used to Change Password.
Please don't change the password and not write it down or not tell other CareerScope users. IF YOU LOST OR FORGOT YOUR
PASSWORD: This is also where you can enter the serial number from the CareerScope CD case, and then set your new password.
(Write down the new password right away.)
DBF Operations - Useful features
here. If you want to show what CareerScope can do but don't want your clients to appear, click Open Alternate Database
and then Tutorial and then Practice. This will show sample clients only. The next time you enter the Management
System you will see your regular client records again. Consult Help and User Guide to learn more about Merge, Backup,
Backup and Clear or Move database.
Default Settings - Motor Performance Scores:
By default these are at the 50 percentile for the dexterity aptitudes - there is usually no reason to change these.
Administration Template: the default is the VRI Standardization Default. If you just want to administer an Interest
Inventory to a group of, say, 11 year olds, or people with CP - this is where to set the default. (You could also do
this on a case-by-case basis in Data Entry tab.) If you purchases the Audio and/or Spanish administration add-ons, this
is where to set those administraiton templates as the default. (You could also do this on a case-by-case basis in Data Entry
Evaluee Printing - If you want a true Self-Service career assessment -
this allows the client to print out their report. When you enable this option, you can also specify which report(s)
they can print: Summary and/or Assessment Profile. The Assessment Profile is the most useful, but also requires
the most paper (14-20 or more pages). The Counselor Report cannot be printed using this option.
Help - Click a topic in the Table of Contents and you will jump to that topic. Use the binocular icon
to search for key words. Click the Text icon if you want to cut and paste text.
Account Operations - Allows people with the Metered version of CareerScope to manage their usage. See
User Guide and also Receiving Metered Administrations and Central Distribution of Web-based Metered Administrations at main CareerScope Training Site.
Management System: Looking at the Tabs across the top of center screen:
Reports Tab - This is what you see by default. You can search by last name (only partial spelling required) or
ID Code or leave the Look For: box empty and click Find - you will see everyone in your database. Report
Type: Here you see the three CareerScope reports - you can check or uncheck any of them to control whether they are
printed. Configuration button to the right the three reports determines what information is printed. For Assessment
Profile you usually want Cover Page, Interest Inventory, Aptitude Assessment and Recommendations. Under Recommendations
you want Aptitude and Interest (unless they have indicated no interests, in which case Aptitude Only may be more useful).
Select GOE/DOT and Include Job Titles for a report that lists fairly specific occupations for which the person has both interest
and aptitude. Include GED Supplement limits the vocational recommendations based on Math and Reading scores - don't
use this without seeing User Guide. Select ONET for more general vocational recommendations, but which are tied
to the ONET system. Select Legend so that the person can interpret their assessment results in greater detail.
Configuration for Counselor Report: You can leave all as selected
Configuration for Summary Report: Do you
really need the Cover Page? Do you really need the Legend? If not, this is a great one-page report. It might
be most useful to select Rank Interest Areas and Two Symbols for Work Groups.
The Configurations you select will now be the default for everyone using this installation
of CareerScope. If you change something for a one-time need (e.g. Aptitude Only for a person with no Interests)
- change it back when you are done.
Multiple Reports Tab - Most
often used if you had a busy day or week assessing people with no chance to print out reports. Using this tab, you can
select based on test dates within a day or longer date range.
