    Level 3 Career Assessment
    (not mandated by regulation)

    What

    The Level 3 Career Assessment (situational assessment) is a comprehensive career assessment that utilizes work, real or simulated, as the basis for assessment.

      • Performed by individuals with vocational assessment experience
      • 10 day minimum 
      • Provides the opportunity to assess the student’s social skills in the work environment.  
      • Assess work skills and habits to inform post-secondary plan
      • RCSD - Level 3 Community Based Work Assessment (CBWA) - work-site based assessment to determine work skills and abilities of a a student (ex.BJ's Warehouse, Marshall's, Fresh Wise Food Catering, Monroe Muffler).  

    Who

    Generally, these assessment instruments are appropriate for students with the following learning styles:

      • Concrete learner: a person whose primary way of learning is by doing. The concrete learner is a hands on learner who can apply skills only after they have been demonstrated and practiced.
      • Poor generalization skills: This person does not apply skills learned in one environment to other environments. For this person, the application of learned knowledge is situation specific.

    When

    Completed the year before exiting (after a Level 1 Career Assessment has been performed).

    Why

    The Level 3 Career Assessment is used to obtain additional information when the structured collection of information from the Level 1 Career Assessment is NOT sufficient to make a career programming decision

    AND

    This style of evaluation is appropriate for the student’s abilities, disability and learning style.

    The Level 3 Assessment may also be used if a Level 2 Career Assessment did not yield sufficient information to make a career programming decision.

                  Note: A Level 3 Assessment may be done without performing a Level 2 assessment. The tool that best
                  matches the students learning styles should be used.
