Career Readiness Self-Assessment
For more than a decade, SPN has been conducting school and district assessments as a means of supporting leaders in their school improvement efforts. This experience has led to development an array of tools, which are now available in the Career Readiness Self-Assessment. These easy-to-use checklists are designed to help school administrators and staff assess the career readiness of their students and the efficacy of their practices. While the self-assessment is designed to be completed by school personnel independently, SPN staff can be contracted to provide any follow-up onsite support that would be helpful. The Career Readiness Self Assessment set of checklists may be used by school districts in New York State.

CAREER Instructional Model
The CAREER Instructional Model identifies six instructional elements that are essential to career readiness. For each element, there is an online survey for teachers to reflect on their instructional practices. The surveys are free and take less than 5 minutes to complete. They are meant to serve as a personal assessment tool. After responding to a series of characteristics with the degree to which they are in your practice, you will receive a report that summarizes favorable practices and offers suggestions on how to improve other practices.
