Abstract: Counselling unit plays a vital role at school as they deal with students’ problem and finding solutions to that. In most cases, students are not aware of their actual strength(s) which led to unsatisfied performance in academic and uncertainty in choosing the right courses which later affect their career. The aim of this research is to identify the evaluation criteria for Malaysian school students’ context in order to discover students’ major strengths, which in turn will help counsellors to consult students in terms of academic achievement and suggest suitable courses for them based on the intelligence test. The interview was conducted with several number of counsellors and the multiple intelligence theory was used to generate set of automated intelligence test based on the evaluation criteria. A series of evaluation were conducted to test its usability and quality requirements.
