Each assessment focuses on specific areas, such as abilities, emotional intelligence, personality, motivations, and interests. Together, we determine which one is right for you.
Highlands Ability BatteryThe Highlands Assessment helps determine what you do best by revealing your natural talents, gifts, and abilities. The assessment instrument shows your cognitive strengths and guides you towards your career options. It is an objective way to assess various qualities in a virtual online format. There is no pass/fail or good grades/bad scores. Most of the assessment is a series of engaging online games, called work samples. The Highlands Ability Battery assesses the performance of objective tasks that measure natural abilities. The Highlands reveals your approach to problem-solving, decision-making, preferences for working alone or in groups, and learning techniques that help recall pertinent information. It’s a great tool to use for future planning efforts prior to investing in an education or career choice.
The Print: The Why of You assessment was so accurate. The report’s contents provided me with a “career requirements” page that shows what I need at work to be fulfilled and how to use my strengths and gifts. From the checklist, I was able to see what I need to feel energized and be successful. I was skeptical but now I’m a believer. I would not have known how to use that assessment without Andrea’s guidance and expertise.
The Highlands was a refreshing break from the usual career aptitude tests. The game-like structure of the test kept me interested and competitive throughout each section of the assessment.
The debrief with Andrea helped me comprehend my results in ways that other assessments have not done. I now have useful information about my future and my brain that I had not considered. Thanks to Andrea and the team at the Highlands Company for allowing me to grow.
