There are various quizzes, especially online, that are designed to help people find the right college for them; many schools offer them directly on their websites. Some call them college personality quizzes and others are college compatibility quizzes.
U.S. News and World Report and Forbes magazines both have college-matching quizzes on their websites. Answers to questions about educational attitudes and goals inform these quizzes, and lead to finding the right match. They can help people see if they're participant learners, meaning they'd benefit from a school offering a more active, hands-on approach to learning, for example. If people are into fencing, they'd want a school with a fencing team.
