How does it work?

The me3 application is a technology designed from research and a Euclidean distance matching algorithm that calculates your RIASEC score, based on choices you’ve made on a visual quiz. This score represents your levels of interest in data, things, people, and ideas then the me3 compares your scores to those of more than 500 careers based on data provided by the U.S. Department of Labor. In a nutshell, it’s a fancy picture quiz that ties your interests to possible career paths.

How do I take the quiz?

You can access the me3 quiz on the ASU Prep Digital website and pick from one of three buttons: for high schoolers, for college students and one for parents and educators.

There, you can select what you’re interested in, fill in your answers to 3 simple questions and do a quick keyword search to target your interest:

“What do you want to study?”
“What do you want to be?”
“Where do you want to study?”

In the quiz, you’re presented with 60 slides. Each has two different images to choose from. The images are of professionals working different occupations; for example, a therapist, a surgeon, a public speaker, a salesman, etc. You simply choose the image that appeals most to you. The algorithm takes it from there. Once complete, the results are listed below and you can choose from a drop-down list of specific majors and careers that match your preference– it’s that easy!

Another cool feature of the me3 is how it provides you with the stepping stones to accomplish your goals. Once it matches you with potential majors and career paths, the app provides students with detailed information about the classes and coursework required in a specific major, the campuses at ASU where they’re offered (or if they’re offered online) and a salary range for potential careers. So, students walk away knowing where they can expect to land when they graduate.
