- How do WorkKeys assessments affect college and career readiness perceptions of Alaska high school students? (pdf, 281KB)
By Deanna Schultz and Sam Stern
This report analyzes the gap between how high school juniors perceive their readiness to pursue training in a chosen career path and the WorkKeys assessment of their knowledge and skills needed to pursue training in an area. The Research Brief identifies implications for policy and practice, and recommends that skills assessments such as WorkKeys be integrated into career development and college planning activities.
- Alaska career pathways: A baseline analysis (pdf, 1.09MB)
By Dayna Jean DeFeo, Sue Fallon, Diane Hirshberg, Cathy LeCompte
This report details the findings from a 2013 statewide study of career pathways (CP) and programs of study (PoS) in secondary districts in Alaska. Twenty-seven of Alaska's 54 districts provided data around the maturity of their CP/PoS, the availability of different CP/PoS, how career planning is addressed, and the availability of courses and PoS in the Health Sciences cluster.
