College of Western Idaho (CWI) students benefit from using My Plan which is accessible at cwidaho.myplan.com. There are four assessments available through My Plan.
The first is a personality assessment based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI).
The second is an interests assessment based on the Holland Codes used in the Strong Interest Inventory.
The third is a skills assessment based on measurements of General Cognitive Ability, Complexity Indices, and Vocational Preparation Metrics.
The fourth is a values assessment based on Dawis and Lofquist’s (1984) Theory of Work Adjustment.
MyPlan will create a composite score based on all the assessments the student takes and compare that score, as well as the individual scores, to the 748 careers in their database. If you would like to take the free assessments, please contact Lori Yellen, Advisor for the College, Career, Transfer Center, at (208) 562-2421 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Career Information System (CIS)
CIS is a division of the Idaho Department of Labor and since 1980 has been helping people in Idaho with volumes of information about occupations, postsecondary education, financial aid and finding jobs.
The goal at CIS is to help people make informed career decisions. We pride ourselves on creating the only comprehensive source of career information available anywhere that focuses both on Idaho and national information.

Make successful career decisions and educational plans
Find work that fits your career goals
CIS promotes lifelong learning and includes assessment, career and college planning, and financial aid resources. It is appropriate for middle schools, high schools, postsecondary institutions, and agencies serving adult populations such as employment offices, vocational rehabilitation programs, and correctional facilities.
