The Ability Explorer (AE) ranks a person's strengths in the 12 abilities important in today's workplace. In less than 30 minutes, individuals learn their strongest abilities, plus related careers for developing and using these abilities.
Written at an 8th-grade reading level, this 120-statement assessment raises self-awareness, provides practical insights and information, and creates a foundation for informed career and educational planning. Individuals are asked to read each statement and then indicate how good they are or would be at doing the activity. They then progress through steps that show the abilities they are best at and present career choices that match their abilities.
