Bridges Transitions, a Xap Corporation company, has unveiled its latest version of Choices®, the nation's most popular online college and career planning solution, available in over 13,000 schools, colleges and career agencies across North America.
Choices helps students create individualized learning plans through comprehensive and easy-to-use portfolio functionality, assessments and planning tools not found elsewhere. The latest version has a number of enhancements, including improved accountability through new Career Clusters integration, which makes it easier for educators to align their career planning curriculum to the States' Career Cluster Initiative.
"This year, over a million students and adults have chosen to use Choices for their personalized education and career plans," said J. Michael Thompson, Xap's CEO. "We are dedicated to helping them realize their dreams, which are valuable to them personally and to our collective community."
There are three distinct Choices products built around a common portfolio that is transferable from middle school to high school, and beyond. Choices Explorer offers original education and career exploration content written at an age-appropriate middle school and high school level. Choices Planner provides high school students with comprehensive college and career planning resources in English and Spanish. In addition, adult and post-secondary users have access to personalized career assistance tools through Choices Planner for Career Transitions.
This year, Utah, Colorado and Rhode Island joined seven other states that license Choices statewide for its students and families.
