Career development exams are offered to assist students who want to explore career alternatives. The Lamar State College Orange Testing Center offers the newest in valid and reliable career assessment instruments. Two such instruments are the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (MBTI) Career Report and the Strong Interest Inventory (SII).
