The Jackson Vocational Interest Survey (JVIS) was developed to assist individuals with educational and career planning. The original development of the JVIS spanned a 10 year period, taking as its starting point the accumulated wisdom of 50 years of experience with vocational interest measurement. Since its publication in the 70's, work has continually been done to keep the JVIS up to date.
- Sex-fair assessment
Males and females are measured in terms of a common set of interest dimensions which do not make discriminations on the basis of traditional male and female occupations.
- Unique, unrelated scales
Final item selection involved a series of multivariate psychometrically-based procedures designed to select items most clearly related to the interests being assessed, to suppress response biases, and to minimize the redundancy between scales.
The respondent is asked to indicate a preference between two equally popular interests rather than to reply simply like or dislike.
- Ease of administration

Can administer remotely
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
