The basic purpose of AIMS is the scientific study of human behavior based on accurate measurements. It has the larger, more pragmatic goal of helping individuals plan happier and more successful careers. As individuals are tested, information about their traits becomes the primary source of data for the research program. The knowledge derived from this research benefits AIMS program participants who are making educational and vocational decisions.
There are four steps you will need to complete to register for the AIMS program:
You will need to create a username and password. These are important for several reasons. They help you navigate the website more efficiently. They help us to make certain that all of your information is stored with the same account. You will need your username and password, if you have to return to the website at some time to perform some part of the registration process.
Creating this log in information does not place you under any obligation.
The second step in the process is to complete a registration form. This is a lengthy questionnaire about you including your education and work experience (if any), and hobbies.
Remember that we are a research foundation and the data collected is used in our validation studies. None of your personal data will be shared with anyone or any organization. In our published findings, no client is ever identified by name. All of this information is kept confidential.
Please remember that the more information we can collect using this form, the higher the quality of our research. So please answer as many questions as you can.
You must have completed the registration form one working day before you call to schedule your testing appointments.
While the major focus of our testing is aptitudes, we also use a test we have developed to estimate your interests in 10 essential types of activities. This needs to be completed before your first testing session. Most people complete this before calling to make an appointment. It takes 15-20 minutes.
The final step is to make a deposit of $200 to hold your appointments. The balance is due at the start of your first AIMS session.
For information on the total cost, see the last entry under Frequently Asked Questions.
When you have completed the registration form (and the interest test, if possible), call us at (972) 234-8378 to schedule your appointments after 9 am on the next working day.
Please create a user-name and password. This will allow you to navigate this website more efficiently. Also, if you need to interrupt any part of the process, this log-in information will allow you to return later to complete the task. Establishing this log-in information does not place you under any obligation.
A new email address and password is required for each client. You may not use the same login for more than one person. Whenever possible, clients should complete the registration form themselves. Parents can help by providing information, but some questions require the client's personal preferences.
Once logged in, you will be prompted to register before taking the interest test.
