Career Occupational Preference System - Picture Inventory (COPS-PIC)
The Career Occupational Preference System – Picture Inventory of Careers (COPS-PIC) (Knapp-Lee, L., 2007) is a nonverbal assessment of occupational interest.
The COPS-PIC illustrates a variety of occupational activities, using realistic pictures of people in non-stereotyped roles. This form of COPS is designed to help assess students with reading or language difficulties and individuals with low academic or career motivation, as well as non-reading and non-English-speaking adults. Scores are linked to 14 Career Clusters: science, technology, consumer economics, outdoor, business, clerical, communication, arts, and service.
