What is YouScience?
Scoir has partnered with YouScience to provide your students with free career and aptitude assessments. YouScience consists of eleven fun, game-like exercises (9 aptitude ‘brain games’, 1 interest survey and 1 personality profiler).
Unlike simple interest surveys, YouScience uncovers a student’s innate ability and matches them to careers for which their natural talents will help them excel.
To complete a YouScience assessment, your student must have a Scoir student account. Please note that this assessment can only be completed once per Scoir student account.
The entire assessment takes around 90-120 minutes to complete, with each section lasting around five to ten minutes. Once the assessment has begun, students can leave and pick up from where they left off at any time from their Student Profile.
Currently, there is no method to link an existing YouScience account to a Scoir account. We’re working with YouScience to provide this functionality as soon as possible.
