How was CARSability created?

CARSability took four years to develop and involved over one thousand industry representatives from across the country.

Our assessment questions for each of the 34 occupations were written by teams of experts who specialized in one of the 34 specific occupations. These question developers were chosen for their experience in their respective automotive field. This ensured the highest quality of questions for each occupation.

Each of our questions was individually focus tested for quality by industry employers and employees who had explicit knowledge of the question's content.
