Every student is unique. Effective college planning focuses on a student's specific strengths.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Counselors, parents, and teachers will gain deeper insight into their students, and students will better understand their own strengths and potential, with a partnership that adds Human eSources' Do What You Are, Learning Styles Inventory, and MI Advantage online assessment tools to CollegeOnTrack’s college planning platform.
Human eSources has been providing online assessment products for over 15 years, and their offerings are rooted in decades of research on personality type, learning styles, multiple intelligences, and college student success. Thousands of schools in over 60 countries use their tools to motivate students, help them discover their natural gifts, enhance confidence, and make better decisions. The three products they are providing through CollegeOnTrack will allow students to:
- Find career and education paths that match their personalities and interests
- Boost learning aptitude and employment potential by exploiting their multiple intelligences
- Increase academic potential by determining their learning style preferences
When added together, these tools highlight where students will be most successful and help teachers, counselors, and mentors discover the best ways to work with their students.
According to Human eSources CEO Bert Miller, “Every student is unique. Effective college planning focuses on a student’s specific strengths, needs and interests. Parents, counselors, and advisors can help their students by understanding these unique preferences and personalities so students can choose the most successful academic approaches.”
This new partnership benefits both companies. It enhances the appeal of CollegeOnTrack’s college planning package for schools and individuals, and it gives Human eSources a new distribution channel for its assessment tools.
CollegeOnTrack was established in 2010 to provide college planning tools for families, schools, and counseling firms. It offers a combination of rich digital portfolios, collaboration support, and task management that helps students build a mindset of success and create strong college applications. The company was a semi-finalist in the 2011 Berkeley Business Plan competition.
CollegeOnTrack ran successful tests last year at high schools in California's Santa Clara County, where students and teachers have been enthusiastic about the product. It was released to the public in January, 2012.
