This report summarizes initial research into the self-scoring accuracy and psychometric properties of a paper-and-pencil (P & P) version of the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form. The self-scoring P & P version of the Interest Profiler is necessary for settings where computers are unavailable and assessment time is limited. Sites that need a paper-and-pencil version are, for example, schools and correctional facilities.
