Kuder Navigator® – recently named an EdTech Digest Cool Tool Award finalist – is an online career planning system that provides students in grades 6-12 with the tools necessary for lifelong career success, including Kuder's research-based career assessments that measure interests, skills, and work values.
Based on more than 75 years of ongoing research, the Kuder assessments serve as a powerful springboard for career planning and are best-in-class for their validity and reliability.
In a June 2016 announcement by the Iowa Department of Education, each Iowa school district must use a career information and decision-making system that supports the requirements for the career and academic planning process established in statute and meets the standards adopted by the SBE in compliance with Iowa Administrative Code Chapter 49.
The announcement also outlined Iowa House File 2392 Division I—Individual Career and Academic Planning (ICAP), which calls for the establishment of a system focused on the student experience and preparation for postsecondary success. .
“Kuder is proud to have been selected by the Iowa State Board of Education as a provider of a quality career information system that fully meets its rigorous standards,” said Phil Harrington, Kuder president and CEO. “We look forward to welcoming more students and school districts here in our home state to the Kuder family of products, which have helped more than 165 million people worldwide see what they can be.”
