Academic Answers provides recommendations based on all the assessment results and from discussion with peers, family, and any others who may shed light on the person’s behavior in different settings.

Career and aptitude assessments are used to identify skills and personality features that determine suitable career options, college degree plans, and training necessary to fulfill any requirements needed to be employable in a desired job field.

Substance Abuse Evaluations focus on an individual’s concerns about current substance use or on identifying potential substance-related problems. These types of evaluations include substance-related measures that determine current levels of usage and establish treatment options, if necessary.
