AMERICAN FORK, UTAH (PRWEB) MAY 26, 2022 — YouScience, the leading student engagement platform that leverages data science to improve student success and bridge the divide between education and careers, has announced that the Iowa Department of Education has selected its YouScience Discovery and Precision Exams as pre-approved Career Information Systems (CISs) for use immediately by all Iowa school districts through the 2024-2025 school year.
The solutions from YouScience were approved by the Iowa Department of Education as part of a statewide Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) initiative for each student in grades 8-12. Redesigned in 2016, the state’s career and academic planning process for students place a greater emphasis on Career and Technical Education (CTE) rather than traditional career planning assessment methods and inventories. The process now includes high-quality, high-value, career-related experiences designed to increase student engagement and align student interests with local, regional, and state labor market needs.
“Iowa districts, schools, educators, and counselors are doing amazing work, and we are excited to continue to support student engagement and further interest in career and academic planning,” said Edson Barton, Founder and CEO, YouScience. “Our goal at YouScience is to provide opportunities for all students to understand their aptitudes and how they relate to their career pathways. By using YouScience Discovery and Precision Exams, students can identify their natural talents and earn industry-recognized certifications even before graduating high school.”…Read More
