1960s and 1970s: Development of Work Samples
Throughout our history we have worked closely with the U.S. Department of Labor to develop numerous vocational training products.
In the 1960’s, the JEVS Work Sample System was designed, developed, standardized, and distributed to the marketplace.
1977: Our partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor also led to the development and standardization of the Vocational Information and Evaluation Work Samples (VIEWS), the first work sample assessment system specifically designed for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
1979: VITAS (The Vocational Interest Temperament and Aptitude System) was introduced as a streamlined version of our JEVS Work Sample System.
