Take a Birkman® Preview assessment
of your learning styles.
The Birkman® Preview is administered online and consists of 125 forced-choice pairs; meaning that you pick your favorite activity or work setting from two choices presented. When you've made five choices on that first page, another five pairs are presented to you. The second and the later five pairs of choices are based partly on your choices among all of the prior pairs. There are lots of personality, temperament and learning style assessments available. But the Birkman® Preview is, by far, the most widely validated and easily adapted to the matching a student's learning style to the educational cultures a student will encounter in high school and college of all the assessments we've tried.
A 17-page report of your results will be in your e-mail inbox in 5 minutes. This report is invaluable to us at CollegeLab. In it:
- The first nine pages compare the student to a national sample of 2.5 million employed people and graphically tells us how the student compares to these people in the major elements of their learning style. That is, their:
- Usual work style;
- Emotional needs;
- Favorite ways of expressing themselves; and
- Usual behaviors when under stress.
- The last eight pages indicate how similar the student is to subsets of those 2.5 million people in 168 careers and job types. This detailed comparison helps highlight which extracurricular, summer and work experiences can give a student a chance to test their interests, possible academic majors or even careers.
It moves fast and it's surprisingly insightful. It's available from SSI, Inc., a Philadelphia area career counseling firm, for only $40. CollegeLab is not paid any commission by SSI, Inc.
This may be the most valuable investment you make in your college search!
