Vocational Assessments

Type 1

Community- based worksite assessment which may involve job shadow and/ or work experiences. The process includes:

  • Assessing participants’ vocational strengths and limitations and developing an individualized training plan
  • Designing and developing instructional aids which could impact on learning and job performance in the community
  • Assessing the participants’ work related behaviors, skills and abilities in a work setting or within the Service Providers facility
  • Identifying the barriers to employment and developing training plans that recognize the social, emotional and physical needs of participants and which will facilitate adjustment to the workplace
  • Liaising with referring agencies/ Case Coordinators who are responsible for the participants’ overall vocational plan

Type 2

PRO 3000 Assessments (including Mobile Unit)

  • Hands- on work samples
  • Computerized assessment
  • Pro 3000 Interest Survey
  • Hall Occupational Orientation Inventory
  • Wide Range of Achievement Test (WRAT- III)
  • Reading Level Indicator

Mobile Unit area covered:

  • North- The Pas, Minnedosa, Dauphin, Russel, Roblin and Swan River
  • East- Gladstone, Carberry and Neepawa
  • South- Swan Lake, Boissevain, Deloraine and Killarney
  • West- to the Saskatchewan border

There are five major components to the Pro 3000 system from the participants perspective. These components can be used in whole or in part, at the discretion of the evaluator to meet the needs of the participant.

Components Include:

  1. Manual Work Samples– eleven sample units in total, each with separate user guide for the evaluator to assist in administering, observing, and scoring the test results. The work samples that compare a Pro 3000 assessment have been developed to give results measured against established industrial work rate standards (i.e. criterion- references assessment). Each sample generates scores in the area of aptitude, physical demands, and related factors, based on the US Department of Labor job analysis techniques.
  2. Pro 3000 Computerized Assessment, Non- Academic- self- administered via the computer, using a hand control or a mouse. Several short work samples replicate aspects of the manual work samples and are tested and scored.
  3. Pro 3000 Computerized Assessment, Academic- self- administered, computerized tests that score reasoning, mathematics, and language skills (called general educational development). The computer generates and score the test automatically.
  4. Pro 3000 Computerized Assessment, Interest Tests- a total of 13 self- administered sub- tests generated and scored (on a 1 to 5 scale) on the computer measure 11 aptitudes and 12 areas of interest.
  5. Paper and Pencil Survey- focusing on vocational interests

The evaluator is in charge of determining what portions of the Pro 3000 system are utilized for each participant’s individualized assessment. Once all relevant information is completed by the evaluator, a variety of output reports, including job matches are generated.
