The CAREERS Program offers Accuplacer and Pre-Valuate assessments to City employees as a tool for evaluating their academic strengths and weaknesses. Below is an explanation of each assessment:
ACCUPLACER assessments assess an employee's skill levels in reading, writing/grammar, and math. The assessments identify areas of skill development and training programs that would benefit an employee's professional development. The assessments can also aid the employee with identifying what academic courses an employee should enroll in when pursuing continuing education coursework.
PRE-VALUATE assessments assess an employee's skills in various Microsoft office products as well as customer service, legal, accounting, medical, etc. It provides employees with a comprehensive report as to where their skill level is on various programs. The assessment identifies basic skills, intermediate, and advanced levels.
