Taking Employment Pathfinder Assessments on BEAM

Now that you’ve reached the Employment Pathfinder, you can take assessments to find the best employment path for the person you support..

You can also generate a unique User ID and shareable URL to send to the person you support so that they can complete the assessments on their own device, on their own time.

When you both answer assessments, Employment Pathfinder will perform a gap analysis between your respective answers. This analysis will offer tools and tactics to remediate any skill gaps.

To start the assessments:

  • Press Start Quiz on any assessment
  • You can take the assessments in any order
  • You do not have to complete all assessments to generate a report
  • Answer the questions with the person served or wait for them to complete the assessments on their own if you’re unable to complete the assessments with them.

As assessments are completed, a check mark will appear next to them

When enough assessments are completed, you can download a job summary report with key information on assessment results that shape the employment path of the person you serve.
