AchieveWorks Skills

AchieveWorks® Skills, part of the AchieveWorks suite, looks at the skills that are critical in both school and the workplace. Ensure students are prepared for college and work-ready with a greater understanding of their skillset and ways to develop individual skills.

Show senior high school students what their top aptitudes and soft skills are, how they can be built over time, and which employment and career opportunities suit them best. When retakes are charted over time, students can see their skillset – and opportunities – grow. Written specifically for students from 10th to 12th grade, AchieveWorks Skills can be completed in less than 20 minutes.

Based on 50 years of ongoing HEXACO research, AchieveWorks Skills provides insight into the complex skills identified as critical for academic and employment success. 15 distinct skill facets comprise five skills within the report: conscientiousness, creativity, critical thinking, leadership and social-emotional. Along with their results, students will find details for each skill, ways to develop independent skills and a list of careers that match their top skills.

For an even greater understanding of each student, AchieveWorks Skills works together with AchieveWorks Personality and AchieveWorks Intelligences to reveal different aspects of an individual’s talents, gifts and preferences, as well as leading to the best possible career matches using Human eSources Career Matching Technology™.
