The Difference Between the COPS-R and the COPS

The Career Occupational Preference System, Form-R (COPS-R), is an alternate form of the COPS. This interest assessment is more appropriate for examinees who have difficulty reading at an eighth grade reading-level.

The norms for the COPS-R are combined for males and females, and survey questions were developed and written to minimize gender differences. The test booklets have been modified for counselors’ convenience (green for the COPS-R compared to blue for the COPS). The COPS-R booklet also contains the Self-Interpretation Profile and Guide (included with the actual assessment) so that administration and scoring may be managed in a straightforward manner with fewer materials.

Please contact EdITS for samples of both the COPS-R and the COPS.
