LOVELAND -- YouSeeU, a leading educational technology company, announced it will introduce a new Soft Skills Assessment Service at the Higher Learning (HLC) Annual Conference, April 16-18 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago and at the ASU-GSV Summit, April 18-20, in San Diego.
The Soft Skills Assessment Service measures and analyzes student progress towards meeting program learning objectives, and aids in facilitating accreditation by demonstrating continuous improvement processes, the company said.
YouSeeU said the service enables broad learning outcome benefits for academic administrators:
- Improving learning outcomes - Provides metric-based analysis and reports to enable continuous improvement of learning outcomes.
- Increasing quality/efficiency - Aids in the development of standards, measurement and processes for increased quality and efficiency.
- Facilitating accreditation - Insures institution practices are consistent with accreditation guidelines and educational policy.
- Eliminating time-consuming and laborious tasks - YouSeeU does the work, taking the pain out of assessment preparation and execution.
Soft skills are critical and increasingly required in today’s complex, fast-changing academic and professional environments, the company said. YouSeeU’s online platform enables students to complete video-based assignments to learn, practice and demonstrate advanced thinking, as well as develop organizational and communication skills to achieve desired results.
“We’re excited to offer our new assessment service to improve outcomes and ultimately facilitate accreditation,” said Dr. Jeff Lewis, chief learning officer.
“Application of YouSeeU for analysis and reporting fills an academic need that enables substantial learning outcome measurement and provides actionable data for your program directors.“
“The Soft Skills Assessment Service is an important addition to our platform, enabling institutions to help students learn critical soft skills, and help academic leaders measure performance and improve programs,” added Jay Dokter, YouSeeU CEO.
