Helping students make purposeful decisions before starting their college journey

Aptitude Testing

Aptitude testing


Aptitude testing is based on your performance, not your perception. Results based on timed performance are far more reliable than results based on self-perception or personal opinion. See the research, HAB Technology and Research. 2.5 hours. 

The Highlands Ability Battery (HAB) is a human assessment tool that objectively measures your natural abilities by asking you to perform specific tasks or exercises. 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 was founded on the work of research scientist Johnson O’Connor, who devoted his life to the study of human engineering. Almost a century of research that began with Johnson O’Connor and continues through the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation, has established that every individual is born with a pattern of abilities unique to him or her.
