In addition, the summary activity section of the booklet includes a four-year Educational Program Planning Guide and a Local Job Interview Sheet. COPS is ideal for classroom career exploration, school course selection, curriculum evaluation, employee development and for use with other components of the COPSystem for an integrated, comprehensive approach.
The COPS Interest Inventory consists of a series of items, providing job activity interest scores related to 14 different Career Clusters. Each cluster corresponds to both high school and college curriculum, as well as current sources of occupational information. The COPS interpretive material emphasizes a “hands-on” approach to career exploration, featuring career and educational planning worksheets, along with a listing of suggested activities to gain experience.
