 “What is the advantage of ordering and printing this paper version instead of the online version?”

Individuals like it because it gives them a personal, hard copy of how they answered each test item to review later. You can take it as many times as you like and compare your scores and responses over time. You can also review how you answered it with others, perhaps with a friend or a counsellor.

Helpers -- counsellors, social service workers, parent educators, youth leaders, and others -- use it with a variety of individuals/groups and situations: Students (secondary school - 8th grade and up, college, and university), workshops for adults, community colleges, Career Days, Junior Achievement, PTA, church youth groups, Scouts, 4-H, correctional settings, vocational rehabilitation and employment counseling . . . .
