This report summarizes the initial development research to create a short form of the O*NET Interest Profiler. The primary objective was to develop brief RIASEC scales for use in counseling and consulting settings where it is helpful to have an interest measure that can be completed in a very short period of time. A secondary objective was to increase the endorsement rate for the Enterprising scale. Initial research on the psychometric properties of the instrument indicates acceptable levels of reliability and convergent and discriminant validity. Item selection in the development of the O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form has successfully increased the endorsement rate for the Enterprising scale.
