Publication Date: Fall 2002
Article discusses the Self-Directed Search (SDS), which is a 35- to 45-minute, 228-item, self-administered, self-scored, and self-interpreted instrument used to identify potential occupations of interest. Scores of the SDS range from two to fifty, and are determined by adding the scale scores for activities, competencies, occupations, and self-estimates. The most common form of the test is the SDS Form R, which was designed for high school and college students as well as adults. Several alternate forms are available, including a computerized administration version and an online version (http://www.self-directed-search.com). Versions are available for middle school students, and business organizations, as well as poor readers; readers with limited English proficiency; and readers who require a Braille version.
