Abstract

The article analyses the basic structure and function of a modern computerized automated test for career guidance, named Career Gate Test K.17, which is provided through personal computers and the internet. The test incorporates a sincerity test and outlines occupational interests and the levels of self-image, determination and consistency. The test is based on many years of research and more specifically on Holland’s personality theory and the original notion of “classification K.17” according to which, the occupations are grouped in seventeen categories and subcategories, derived from economical, psychometrical and educational elements. Part of the algorithm of the test is also presented, as well as findings of its empirical evaluation in the last four years.
