Campbell

Campbell Interest and Skills Survey

The Campbell Interest and Skill Survey (CISS) measures self-reported career interests and skills, using interest scales to reflect an individual's attraction for specific job-related areas.

The CISS utilizes parallel skill scales that provide estimates of a student’s level of confidence in their ability to perform various occupational activities. Together, the two types of scales provide more comprehensive, richer data.  Please contact the Career Services Team for the CISS.
