Developing career ready graduates who can demonstrate they have the soft skills to succeed is a priority consideration for employers, accreditors, and higher education institutions. However, objectively measuring soft skill related learning outcomes can be a challenge.
As described by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), career readiness is the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace.
EvaluSkills utilizes the perspectives of peers, supervisors, advisors, mentors, and colleagues using an online 360-degree assessment process. Learners and faculty gain an in-depth understanding of areas of strength and opportunities for improvement. This process provides an objective and accurate measure of skills essential to success in the workplace.
With over 300 available soft skills to choose from, EvaluSkills can be customized to meet the assessment needs for programmatic evaluation. The instrument can be used by faculty, employers, internship supervisors, and perhaps fellow students. School officials can also use EvaluSkills for staff/employee evaluation, although a slightly different instrument would be used compared to the instrument used for evaluating students.
