The fifth edition of the SDS is designed to help clients learn about themselves and their career options. In 2017, the SDS Form R, 5th Edition was renamed the StandardSDS and given a new look and feel. The Occupations Finder (OF) and Educational Opportunities Finder (EOF) were updated, and workbooks were revised. However, no items were changed or added, so the two versions can be used equally and interchangeably.
The SDS Form R, 5th Edition Spanish version was designed specifically for Spanish-speaking individuals living in the U.S. A Spanish kit, which includes an English-language manual, and English-language Spanish version manual supplement, 25 Spanish Assessment Booklets, 25 Spanish Occupations Finders, and 25 You and Your Career Booklets. Spanish forms are also available. These products use English norms only.
A revised online version of the SDS is also available. Users receive one of three types of interactive, customized reports (StandardSDS, StudentSDS, or VeteranSDS) based on their demographic information and job history. Visit the SDS Web site for more information.
The following SDS Form R, 5th Edition, formats and materials are still available:
