Assessments that provide robust insights for career and study decisions.

Abintra offers two key assessments for adolescents and adults that give robust insights for career and study decisions.


The HIGHLANDS ABILITY BATTERY and the STRONG INTEREST INVENTORY, both based on strong, long-term research, assess natural abilities (Highlands) and interests (Strong).

Together these measurements combine to inform the Whole Person Model. This model looks at the combination of factors that make each of us unique individuals and how these forces influence our choices around studies and careers.

The Highlands Ability Battery


The Highlands Ability Battery (HAB) is rooted in over a century of scientific research on human abilities and used exclusively by well-trained professionals. Unlike many other assessments and inventories, the HAB does not rely on self-reporting. Rather, through a series of work samples, it measures a person’s innate abilities based on performance using objective rather than subjective measures.

Highlands has developed the Whole Person Model for relating the results of the HAB to the other influences that have helped to shape and define you as a unique human being who faces life’s challenges in your own distinctive way. This enables you to take your “whole self” into account when making decisions right here, right now. It also provides you with a tool you can use to make decisions at any turning point throughout your life. Most importantly, taking a whole-person approach provides insights into why and how the decisions you make differ from those of others.

How Abilities are Measured on the HAB

Results based on performance-based measures are far more reliable than results based on self-perception or self-report. Natural abilities (or aptitudes) strongly influence which tasks and activities you find relatively easy and enjoyable as well as the type of work environment where you’re most likely to thrive.
