Each assessment you select should be thoroughly discussed in terms of the appropriateness of using it with your client and should include statistical date to support your decision such as the population on which the assessment was normed, the validity and reliability of using the assessment with your client, and any limitations the assessment would have if using with diverse and special populations. The assessment paper should include how to use electronic resources such as O*NET and CAGS as well as the Dictionary of Occupational Titles to describe the mental, physical, and vocational preparation for work.
