There have been many assessment process outsourcing initiatives to our company. Good number of reputed schools of Delhi/ NCR have outsourced their pre-boards and final assessments to us. Some of the leading engineering colleges have outsourced their year round internal assessments to Venturelab.
Behavioural Assessments New advances in technology and new forms of workplace have redefined the nature and level of the essential skills and knowledge required to be successful in the organization. Most students will spend almost two-thirds of their lives in a diverse and constantly changing workplace. Regardless of personal, career, or educational plans, students must demonstrate proficiency both in academics and certain established workplace standards. Student acquisition of critical workplace skills, with an emphasis on application, is a developmental process which encompasses an individual’s entire lifetime. The demonstration of these skills is essential for individuals as employees and contributes to the foundation of an educated citizenry of a nation.
The global economy has shifted the dialogue from concern about students’ performance on norm – referenced, conventional paper-and-pencil assessments to criterion-referenced measures of a set of “new basics“ that include students’ use of technologies and soft skills such as problem solving, teamwork, and effective interpersonal communications. The competency based framework to educational and career assessment provides a common language and understanding of the new basic—or foundation—skills needs of the young workforce. It is thus important for engineering / management students to be aware and improve their marketability in an ever volatile job market. Understanding their competencies in terms of the job functions and industries that they will enter will enable them to make informed career decisions.
Venturelab offers Engineering and Management students a behavioural assessment program that will give the students, a discerning edge in the job market. The conceptual framework is drawn from similar work that Venturelab has done over five years with leading management and engineering institutions and Company’s extensive experience in competency based assessment in the corporate sector.
