Results & Reporting
endorseMe® can provide statistics on:
- Endorsements of 30 different skills
- Employability skills by 7 different categories
- Year level
- Achievements (such as NCEA Achievements, drivers license and extracurricular activities
These statistics can be used to measure and evaluate student achievement and progress over time. Results from these reports can be used alongside your organisation’s reporting, evaluation and funding applications.
Rangatahi Employability Record
endorseMe® will generate an Employability Record for each young person as they receive endorsements. This record can be used to produce certificates to acknowledge student growth and achievement.
The Employability Record can also complement CVs and applications. This formal record also details their endorsers. The positive language used in this record is also an excellent starting point when writing cover letters.
