Every school aspires to create generations of accomplished students who go to college to acquire knowledge, skills and a rounded education to eventually become productive members of society.
Studies have shown that the most crucial decisions in a young adult’s future are made between high school and college which is unfortunately also when they are the least prepared to make informed decisions.
School guidance counselors are often overwhelmed in their roles to help students make proper college and career choices because standard assessment tests are no longer the best tools in today's highly competitive and complex world. In addition, the lack of comprehensive information about real career options makes it difficult for schools to effectively guide students.
ProTeen brings focus and takes a fresh approach to the standard psychometric assessment of intelligence and aptitude. Its proprietary PROMISE algorithm elegantly integrates aptitude assessments with individuality and interests drawing inspiration from three gurus in the educational field.
Dr. Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory (Harvard University). Dr. Gardner is a world-authority in developmental psychology and a full time faculty member and researcher at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. His MI theory is the leading body of work that has become the gold standard for educators around the world. However, until now there hasn’t been an effective system to translate Dr. Gardner’s ground-breaking work into a useable system for students, parents and schools.
Dr. John L. Holland’s occupational themes (RIASEC) of professions and vocational choice based on personality types.
Dr. Benjamin Bloom’s revised taxonomy of learning objectives
ProTeen’s assessment and functionality is built as a unique mobile and web-based gamified experience that allows students to navigate the world of careers and academics and understand how to match their skills and strengths to those required in the real world.
Schools can have secure access to analytical information about their students. This data, both at an individual level and an aggregate level can be used by the school's guidance counselors to help their students make the right academic choices based on their interests and strengths. ProTeen’s platform allows students to get connected to relevant internships, sponsorships and colleges.
Schools can also use the same vital information to proactively plan academic resources and physical infrastructure.
