June 28, 2017 – Finding new ways to improve K-12 student success and career fit has never been more important, especially given the anticipated increased demand for skilled workers and postsecondary degree holders in tomorrow’s job market.

That is the view of Human eSources president and chief operating officer Ross Dickie, who today announced AchieveWORKS™, the company’s latest advancement in K-12 assessments to support career and educational planning.

Consisting of AchieveWORKS Personality, AchieveWORKS Learning & Productivity and AchieveWORKS Intelligences, the AchieveWORKS suite of assessments engages students with individualized, mobile-friendly, interactive and engaging reports.

“Today, students and professionals deserve a comprehensive set of assessments to build deeper personal insight,” says Dickie, “helping the student explore potential careers and related educational backgrounds where people like them have found success and satisfaction.”

The AchieveWORKS assessments leverage Carl Jung’s personality theory, Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences theory, Dunn, Dunn and Price’s learning style theory and Daniel Goleman’s emotional intelligence theory.  Used in combination with each other or as part of a broader career and education planning solution, the suite provides students with a comprehensive, action-oriented foundation from which to explore career and educational goals.

AchieveWORKS has been developed to do just that, says Dickie.  Building on the company’s 20-year history of providing K-12 counseling tools with proven methodology, AchieveWORKS uses Human eSources’ proprietary Career Matching Technology™ to incorporate data from the Department of Labor’s O*NET database, matching student results to prospective careers that offer higher levels of fit and satisfaction.

“We have developed the AchieveWORKS suite of assessments to work independently, together or as part of a comprehensive career and education planning solution at the school or district level,” Dickie adds. “Used alone or together, AchieveWORKS provides today’s K-12 students with a solid foundation of personal insight to help them successfully leverage their strengths, navigate toward educational and career goals, and ultimately find more satisfaction in life.”

Human eSources is a leading provider of K-12 student assessments in North America using clinically proven methodologies.  Founded in 1997, the company also serves the North American postsecondary and adult workforce markets.


April 9, 2016 — CollegeScope™, a unique new student success product from Human eSources, was named winner of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Annual Convention Exhibitor Innovation Award for College Readiness. AACC-Innovation-Award-graphic AACC is the primary advocacy organization, and is considered the “voice”, of community colleges. “I’m very pleased that CollegeScope received recognition for its innovation,” said Ross Dickie, president and chief operating officer of Human eSources. “The self-awareness assessments fully integrated with CollegeScope give students a uniquely personalized experience as they work through the online chapters. And our recent Blackboard and Canvas learning management system (LMS) integrations allow faculty to save time and manage students in one convenient location.” CollegeScope, a first-year experience online textbook, was chosen by an AACC committee for the college readiness category because of its ability to help improve student outcomes, assist in the successful completion of college entry-level courses and build students’ persistence in their first year. Within its nine chapters, CollegeScope integrates research-proven assessments for personality type, multiple intelligences and learning preferences, covering subjects relevant to success in school, work and life. Chapter content uses recognized pedagogy aligned to the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) learning outcomes and includes interactive activities, quizzes with instant feedback, educational videos, and journal entries for students to reflect on the content. CollegeScope builds proficiency in the use of technology while being easy to use and accessible to anyone with an internet-capable device, from smartphones to tablets to computers.
