Why Take Self-Assessments?

It is much easier to make confident academic and career-related decisions when you know who you are and what is important to you. Self-assessments are a fun and helpful way to get to know yourself better. Through these questionnaires, you may gain a clearer idea of your strengths, skills, personality, values, and interests. This self-awareness is important in making decisions related to majors and careers.

To take these formal assessments, which are free and available to all Butler students, you need to meet with a trained professional who can administer the assessment and interpret the results.
