I really liked using Skillscan’s Career Driver Online. I liked how the system grouped skills and made career and class suggestions based on those skills. I took my students to the computer lab to take the assessment and it was helpful to work in a group because one student’s question helped other students. My students found it easy to use. During my student’s final presentation on their career action plan, they all talked about the Career Driver’s recommendations for their skills and how it would fit into to the job they wanted.
