97% of the counselors returning satisfaction surveys gave a “very good to excellent” rating that certified vocational evaluation services addressed or provided specific information and were effective in addressing consumers vocational "questions and needs" in the development of a successful Individual Plan of Employment.

The true effectiveness of Career Assessment Systems certified vocational evaluation services can be measured based on the consumers who completed and were satisfied with their certified vocational evaluation services experience effectiveness in providing relative information in answering their questions and needs to become competitively employed. Consumers completed a survey after participating in the certified vocational evaluation service and subsequent staffing held with the counselor.
