Birkman Assessment

 

CCS is now offering Birkman Testing on campus for students ages 16 and older. The Birkman Test is a nationally recognized personal interest and personality assessment test that helps individuals gain insight into their own strengths, personality and interests. This information has proven to be a very useful tool for students and parents as they consider what college degree plan to choose and what occupation to later pursue. The test itself takes about 45 minutes and includes a follow up on-campus meeting to discuss results. Click here for more information.
 
 Two reports for the test are available:

  • Birkman Basic $150 - an overview assessment of a student's interests and needs and includes a survey of suggested career options
  • Birkman Suite $250 - a detailed assessment on a student's habits, needs and interests which includes a survey of suggested career options 

Click here to register and make your online payment. Once payment is received, an email will be sent with a testing link. Upon completion of the test, an appointment will be scheduled to review the results.
