The Campbell Interest and Skill Survey (CISS) measures self-reported vocational interests and skills. Similar to traditional interest inventories, the CISS interest scales reflect an individual’s attraction for specific occupational areas.
However, the CISS instrument goes beyond traditional inventories by adding parallel skill scales that provide estimates of an individual’s confidence in his or her ability to perform various occupational activities. Together, the two types of scales provide more comprehensive, richer data than interest scores alone.
The CISS instrument focuses on careers that require post-secondary education and is most appropriate for use with individuals who are university bound or tertiary qualified.
How to Use This Instrument
Counsellors, psychologists, and human resource professionals in mental health, business, and educational settings can use the CISS survey to help:
The CISS instrument was standardized using a reference sample of 5,225 employed men and women representing a wide array of occupations and ethnic backgrounds.
