The Highlands Ability Battery for Adults
The Highlands Ability Battery is a three-hour online assessment taken on a desktop or laptop.
The Battery helps identify your unique and natural abilities and assist you in determining how you learn, solve problems, and view the world. When you finish the Battery, you will get two reports, one report of your core abilities, including a bar chart showing your scores as percentiles. The second report is a Career Supplement that links your abilities to careers with descriptions and projected salaries.
Adults use the Battery when making a career change, or seeking employment.
Your career planning decisions and the career path you choose will determine the patterns and texture of your life and career – whom you marry, where you live, your income, how much time you spend at home, your travels, and how you spend your leisure time. Nevertheless, after years of research and work in career planning, we have concluded that most students leave high school and college without any clear plan to guide them in selecting and pursuing a career or occupation.
We have also concluded that when people feel overwhelmed by a job or career, they often fail to plan adequately for the changes they need to make to restore balance in their lives. The recognition of a career problem does not automatically trigger the career planning that is necessary to alleviate the problem.
