Employability Skills Instrument
Employers, the public at large, legislation and governing bodies all have a stake in higher education, baccalaureate degrees obtained, and the job preparedness of college graduates. The Employability Skills Instrument addresses the trending topics of skill acquisition and career readiness among student employees’ time in higher education. Additionally, the instrument assesses the application of the knowledge, skills and abilities of those student employees in their careers following graduation. Collection of data is formatted along a longitudinal platform, following students from their time in high impact practices such as employment to post-graduation, as career-ready alumni. The instrument is geared towards collegiate recreation currently, but easily adaptable to any co-curricular activities within the institution.
This technology has been developed in collaboration with Catherine Cramp at University of Florida.
