Customize Emails by Department

Each college or department can customize emails sent to students and evaluators and add additional survey questions

Finalize Student Feedback Reports

Your institution will be a part of a select group of institutions chosen to participate in an exclusive pilot program being run in conjunction with the NACE Center for Career Development and Talent Acquisition to use a proven HR solution to measure and assess students’ ‘career readiness’ in work-related behaviors

Requires minimal program time/resources and there's no cost for the pilot 

Insight on how your students’ skills compare to real candidates in similar roles using norming and comparable data on how your institution and programs compare nationally or against similar pilot institutions in the aggregate

Provides standardization through scientifically validated questions while remaining flexible for each department to add customized questions

While internships can vary widely by college or department, this provides an opportunity for campuses to test if evaluations can best be attained through a centrally-managed survey solution which can provide more robust, university-wide reporting

Leverages proven technology to produce a minimally-invasive, maximally effective student evaluation that provides next-generation evidence similar to the university’s post-graduation outcomes survey
