EvaluSkills: Workplace Skills Assessment


Soft skills, or workplace skills, are vital personal qualities that help individuals achieve success in work and life. Yet, both employers and higher education institutions struggle to objectively measure these qualities to understand how we can better develop them.

EvaluSkills provides higher education institutions, employers, and individuals with a flexible and customizable assessment that objectively measures these critical skills. EvaluSkills is a 360-degree evaluation process that utilizes the perspectives of peers, supervisors, advisors, mentors, and colleagues. The evaluation process allows you to understand areas of strength and opportunities for improvement to develop an action plan for continued personal growth.

Employers use EvaluSkills to inform their training and development programs and to conduct effective performance management.

Higher Education Institutions use EvaluSkills to satisfy accreditation requirements by effectively demonstrating progress on intended learning outcomes, develop students into career-ready graduates, and conduct continuous program improvement efforts.

Success Starts with Soft Skills


EvaluSkills provides employers, higher education professionals, and individuals with an essential measurement of soft skill proficiency. It is with this information, that you can objectively understand strengths and areas for improvement. Look below to see what sets a EvaluSkills: Workplace Skills Assessment apart.

Objectivity 
Each assessment item (soft skill) corresponds to a close-ended, 5-point Likert scale rubric. The rubrics concentrate on the exhibited behavior of the participant rather than personal characteristics.

Measure Change and Growth
Have learners and employees complete the assessment more than once over a period of time to track development over time. Utilize the comparison to see where improvements have been made and what additional resources, learning, or training are required to mitigate weaknesses.

Take Action
Once the evaluations are complete, participants (the person evaluated) will receive an action plan as part of their participant report. The action plan makes their results actionable by highlighting strengths to sustain, weaknesses to improve, and establishing a timeline and person to hold them accountable.

Our Approach


Over 200 Soft Skills to Pick From


Customization

EvaluSkills includes a database of over 200 distinct soft skills, each with a standardized rubric using a 5-point Likert-type scale, which improves the objectivity of the assessment. The skills are organized into what is called an instrument report that contains the skill and corresponding rubric. You can create specific assessment instruments, typically including 5-20 separate soft skills. There is no limit to the number of assessment instruments you can have to assess various groups.

EvaluSkills includes several pre-built assessment instruments. You can also customize an existing instrument or build a new instrument by leveraging the depth of the EvaluSkills’ database. Soft skills rubrics are entirely customizable and can be implemented into a specific instrument. All assessment items include the option for written feedback.

The Pre/Post Evaluation Approach


Employers and schools can choose how often and when they will assess their students and employees. The most common practice is a pre/post-test approach to assessment.

In this approach, participants complete the assessment early in the program and then again towards the end of the program. The comparison of pre and post evaluations shows the growth and change of a group or individual over the time of program. A detailed analysis of the evaluating results is used for evaluating program effectiveness.

 

Reports that Promote Growth


Participant Reports

Participant reports allow learners to gain a comprehensive understanding of how others view their strengths and opportunities for improvement. For each competency, participants can compare self-scores against the scores given by external evaluators. The comparison shows learners where they might have a blind spot related to how others perceive them. The quantitative data and qualitative comments assist learners in creating an action plan to sustain strengths, mitigate weaknesses, and hold themselves accountable. The learner also uses the Participant Report to build an action plan for self-development. Participants can also use the Participant Comparison Report for a side-by-side comparison of multiple assessment periods.


Group Reports

Group reports provide information about the overall strengths and development areas of an organization, program, or cohort. This information can be valuable in planning curriculum changes or identifying the developmental needs of your group. Additionally, use pre- and post-tests to measure improvement in workplace skills and how your program has influenced the development of those skills over time.
