YouScience Evaluation

YouScience is an online career and personal planning discovery tool that enables teens and adults to identify their potential aptitudes and careers. To create a personalized YouScience profile, the tool engages students in a series of online exercises to help them identify their natural abilities, refine their specific areas of interest, and explore career opportunities that are aligned with their interests and aptitudes. In an effort led by Senator Lindsey Tippins, state funds were appropriated for a pilot initiative to identify an online profile that would help Georgia high school students discover their aptitudes and apply those strengths to find direction for their pathway, college, and career choices. After a committee explored various options, the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) partnered with YouScience to provide 20,000 licenses to Georgia 10th graders in a representative sample of high schools around the state for the 2015-2016 school year. TCSG partnered with the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) to administer and evaluate this pilot program.
