What aptitudes does YouScience Snapshot measure?

What are aptitudes?

An aptitude is a natural ability to do something. Think of it as hard-wired potential. Some people call these "strengths" or "talents". It is important to understand that these abilities are different than interest, personality, and skills - all of which can change over time. Because aptitudes are stable, they can serve as a reliable navigational tool throughout a lifetime of decisions.

Absolutely! YouScience includes a 60 question interest survey. The magic is combining a student's interests with their aptitudes to find the careers that incorporate what they love with what they're naturally good at.

Aren't interests important too?

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can see the results?

Only your student and their administrator (typically a teacher or guidance counselor) can see their results. We take student privacy very seriously and never share information. 

How will the YouScience results affect my student's time in high school and future plans?

The goal of YouScience is to help students uncover and understand their natural abilities (aka what makes them awesome!) and find the career paths that will best use those talents. With three years of access, your student can continue to use their Snapshot profile to help plan their high school curriculum. 

Why are only 5 aptitudes measured?

Not all aptitudes are solidified in 7th or 8th grade, some take a little longer to fully form.  We tested thousands of students across the country to find the assessments that are stable in middle school students.
