The Highlands Ability Battery

The Highlands Ability Battery (HAB) is the gold-standard among tools assessing human abilities and aptitudes. It objectively measures your natural, hard-wired abilities. As part of the Highlands Whole Person Model, the HAB is the foundation and starting point to identify the career best suited for you. The HAB is unique in that it measures your abilities based on performance rather than perception. Exercises such as recreating designs from memory, manipulating blocks in space, and putting images in logical sequence are some of the virtual tasks you are asked to perform within a set amount of time. Results based on timed performance are far more reliable than results based on self-perception or personal opinion. The HAB consists of 19 virtual work samples that are taken online over an estimated three hours in total. You do not have to take the whole Battery at once, but can do each work sample individually or break them up into smaller groups. 

After you complete all 19 work samples, you will receive customized reports that provide insights into how you think, what makes you tick, and where you will thrive. Your results are revealed in an individual analyses report of more than 30+ pages. The report begins with your personal profile, showing the score achieved for each ability and its significance as it relates to your personality, your motivation, how you learn, communicate, solve problems, and make decisions. HAB reports also include an interactive career supplement that combines your personal style with what motivates you to reveal personal patterns of abilities. Click here to learn more.
