CollegeOnTrack offers a college and career readiness/learning management system that schools use with 6th–12th grade students. It guides students from initial assessments and career recommendations through class planning, homework, portfolio development, and college applications. Now, a partnership with Parchment adds a critical piece: secure transmission of education credentials.
The web-based CollegeOnTrack platform supports numerous “apps”, rather like a smartphone. Its LaunchPad offers apps for assessment, college planning, digital portfolios, and more. Now a new star will be there as well: the eTranscript app which provides access to Parchment technology. Registrars can use it to send student transcripts and letters of recommendation electronically to colleges or employers.
Parchment is a leading technology company allowing learners, educators and employers to request, verify and share credentials in simple and secure ways. The platform has helped millions of people and thousands of schools and universities to exchange more than 12 million transcripts and other credentials globally. Some schools purchase complex software systems specifically to get this capability.
“Parchment is very excited to partner with CollegeOnTrack to help provide guidance counselors more tools to enable student success,” said Parchment CEO Matthew Pittinsky. “Enabling tools for greater matriculation and enrollment in the right institution perfectly aligns with Parchment’s mission to help turn credentials into opportunities.”
CollegeOnTrack helps students pick directions, manage their education, and build their portfolios. The new Parchment collaboration lets them put all their credentials in one place, online, where they can be shared as easily and powerfully as digital portfolios are now. Parchment’s technology allows them to quickly show what they know, and discover education and career opportunities that put their credentials to work.
CollegeOnTrack is a web-based system that enriches the learning experience in middle and high school as it prepares students for college and successful careers. It offers a combination of rich digital portfolios, collaboration support, and task management that helps students build a mindset of success. Administrative modules help educators keep students in school and on track for graduation and college applications.
