The Career Assessment Tool is not a validated test. Instead, it is an exercise to help users to identify their level of proficiency of each career management competence and the options for further enhancement of them. After applying the tool, each user receives personalized report with identified level of competence for the respective skill and references to specific modules in the Career Management Skills MOOC.

The Career Assessment Tool is not based on any specific single theoretical approach. The tool is a combination of various national CMS frameworks, assessment tools and CMS related EU-funded projects.
