Vocational interest & aptitude testing

As part of helping injured workers return to work, our Vocational Rehabilitation Services team may refer clients for vocational interest and aptitude testing. We enter into long-term contracts with providers of these services. As part of the contract, we require a specific report before making payment.

Description of vocational interest and aptitude testing

Clients who are referred to you for vocational interest and aptitude testing are working with our vocational rehabilitation consultants to identify return-to-work options. Through the testing, you will be asked to provide information about the client's aptitudes, vocational interests, and academic abilities.

Typically, you'll administer the General Aptitude Test Battery, or something similar. You'll also conduct achievement testing and administer at least one interest test.

Submitting reports

Once you've completed the testing, we'll need a full report of your findings. Please use our Vocational Rehabilitation Services Vocational Interest and Aptitude Testing Report Cover Sheet (Form 65D28), and submit your report using our Provider Portal. You will need to refer to the contract you sign with us for specifics about what to include in the report and how to submit it.

Please note that we can't process your invoice until we've received your report.
