COMPASS (Computer Adaptive Placement Assessment Support System)
Keirsey Temperament Sorter II – Career Report
What could this assessment do for me as an IU Health employee?
COMPASS is a placement assessment for admision to Ivy Tech Community College. It assesses your skills in reading, writing and math in order to place you into college courses. If you have a desire to attend college and you’ve been out of school for a while, the COMPASS assessment can help you decide what refresher courses may be helpful for you prior to applying for college. In addition, Performance and Professional Development requires COMPASS in order to apply to the College at Work program.
This is an online assessment and a computer is all that is needed. The assessment is by appointment only and is not timed, so you may schedule it at your convenience. You may take the COMPASS assessment at an IU Health Career Resource Center (B180, Methodist Hospital) or any Ivy Tech Community College campus in Indiana. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact Estela Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Keirsey Temperament Sorter®-II (KTS®-II) is one of the most widely used personality assessments in the world. Understanding your personality type can help inform you about career preferences, communication styles, and areas of interest or possible college majors that you may want to explore.
To obtain a passcode and Web site address to access this assessment online, contact Jennifer Olson at email@example.com. Once completed, you will be able to print a career report identifying your Keirsey Temperament along with confidential detailed career information based on your personality.
Seventy questions uncover information about your personality, including your temperament, communication style, behaviors, our attitudes, values and talents. The inventory will reveal how you fit into what Keirsey calls an Artisan, Guardian, Rational or Idealist categories. Each "temperament" within the Keirsey Sorter II has its own unique qualities, shortcomings, strengths and challenges. Being more aware of these can help you understand your preferences and give you valuable insights as you make career or personal decisions. It does NOT tell you which job or occupation to pursue.
The Self-Directed Search assessment was developed by John Holland and helps people identify their interests, likes, and dislikes regarding jobs, occupations, and tasks. Your occupational interests are the best predictor of occupational (job) choice and job satisfaction. Being clear about your interests can help in making satisfying, enjoyable career choices. (Think about how many stories you’ve heard about people who are unhappy in their careers.)
This assessment uses likes, dislikes and occupational interests to help you narrow down what kinds of careers match your interests. Holland's theory states that most people can be loosely categorized with respect to six types: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising and Conventional. It does NOT tell you which occupation to pursue. However, being more keenly aware of your career interests can help in making career choices that fit.
