First Look at “Roadmap to Careers” Tool at ForumAndrew Elwell, Director, Communications
Forum presenters shared a sneak peek of one of the newest opportunities tied to the SAT Suite of Assessments: a career exploration tool, powered by the College Board and Roadtrip Nation.
The new tool, which will be available with the release of PSAT-related assessment scores this December, will be more than your average career aptitude test. Tied to a student’s interests and passions, the roadmap to careers will be personalized and informed by the things that “light them up at their core.” Students will be able explore candid video interviews with successful professionals from all walks of life—individuals who seek to inspire by sharing how they pushed through obstacles and achieved their goals.
Career exploration can help solve real problems for students—it can motivate college readiness, help them understand which pre-requisite courses they need to take, and open their eyes to new possibilities.
As Aaron Lemon-Strauss, Executive Director of SAT Student Success at the College Board, told the educators in the room: “This tool will get more data into your hands so you can have better conversations with your students.”
Plus, it’s available at no cost to students who take the PSAT™ 8/9, PSAT/NMSQT®, or the SAT®.
