Libertyville, IL (PRWEB) June 12, 2009
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the estimated number of students that will enroll in a distance learning program by 2013 is 18.2 million, which is similar to the total population of all adult learners in 2006. In response to this growing trend, Wonderlic has created a solution to help school administrators select students who possess characteristics needed to succeed in these online education programs.
“Our customers have described to us the current challenges of finding ‘right fit’ students for their distance learning programs,” said John Picone, National Sales Manager of Wonderlic Education Solutions. “They are seeking students able to succeed in an on-line environment and who are committed to stick with the program.”
The Wonderlic Distance Learning Solution helps schools understand risk factors of potential students, measure their basic learning and problem solving ability and evaluate writing skills before a student completes the application process. This will help schools make better decisions on students that are more likely to be successful in their program.
The Wonderlic Distance Learning Solution is comprised of four components that help identify students who can successfully complete programs and compete in today’s job market. 1) The Wonderlic Behavioral Risk Profile helps identify risk factors that impact potential distance learner’s retention and completion rates. 2) The Scholastic Level Exam Quicktest provides insight into an individual’s ability to learn and be trained. 3) Automated Essay Administration and Scoring allows for collection and scoring of essays and individual class writing assignments. 4) Wonderlic Online enables school administrators to instantly manage their student application process at all levels.
Wonderlic will be introducing this new offering to the market at the Career College Association trade show in Orlando, Florida on June 14th.
