About the JVIS

The Jackson Vocational Interest Survey (JVIS) was developed to assist high school students, college students and adults with education and career planning. Development of the JVIS began in 1969, using 50 years of research into vocational interest measurement as a starting point, and continues today.

Scientific Construction

The JVIS is one of the most carefully and elaborately constructed psychological instruments. The most modern methods of test and scale construction, and the latest theoretical developments relating to the psychology of work, have been used in the JVIS. The result is a comprehensive, accurate, and sex-fair assessment of vocational interests. No psychological test has undergone more thorough and extensive methods of scale construction and none has made greater use of multivariate statistical procedures and computer-based optimizing procedures for selection of the interest activities used.

The JVIS is published by SIGMA Assessment Systems, a founding member of the American Association of Test Publishers, with a solid reputation based on over 40 years of developing and publishing quality psychological instruments.
