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.
Counsellors, psychologists, and human resource professionals in mental health, business, and educational settings can use the CISS survey to help:
The use of both traditional interest scales and parallel skill scales helps individuals gain a more thorough understanding of suitable career options.
The CISS instrument uses easily understood contemporary items.
Test items reflect a respect for individuals of different gender, race, religion, and national origin.
Combined gender scales allow for the broadest interpretation of survey results.
The seven Orientation Scales, 25 Basic Scales are based on Dr. Campbell’s model for occupational orientations. These orientations generally correspond to the familiar RIASEC themes.
The 25 Basic Scales, which represent parallel interest and skills scores, divide the Orientation Scales into the following categories:
The CISS instrument was standardised using a reference sample of 5,225 employed men and women representing a wide array of occupations and ethnic backgrounds.
Individual Profile Report
The CISS results are presented both numerically and graphically and include narrative comments to facilitate easy interpretation by the respondent. In particular, the report recommends vocations that the respondent should pursue (high interest and high skill), avoid (low interest, low skill), explore (high skill, low interest) and develop (low skill, high interest). Also, a worksheet is available to facilitate action planning, and a two-page file summary is included for use by the career counselor.
