Online occupation interest test for challenged people

The Strong in Work Interest Test (SIWIT) is an online career choice test for people with a mild mental retardation (in Dutch only). The test was developed by CentERdata in cooperation with the foundation Sterk in Werk (‘Strong in Work’) and the Department of Human Resource Studies at Tilburg University.

Test setup

Participants of the test are shown a large number of pictures of professions and are asked to indicate whether they like the profession or not. The pictures are supported by audio fragments. The online site also has an administrative module for job coaches and pedagogical institutions.

After completing the test, an extensive report in PDF format containing the test results is automatically generated for each participant. This report also provides suggestions for the participant which professions suit him or her best.

This test is available since 2009 and more than 30,000 tests have been completed since then. User accounts are managed by the Sterk in Werk foundation in Boxtel.
