RUReadyND.com Frequently Asked Questions

 

RUReadyND.com moved forward in the fall of 2013 with a new platform makes the site more useful and intuitive.  The new generation platform has a different look and feel while providing you with all of the same content you are used to – but more!  Instead of choosing a product as in the past (Choices Explorer/Choices Planner), the user chooses a role (Middle School/High School/College/Adult/Parent) so the information will be integrated throughout the program.

A new assessment, Career Key, was added to help students get started with their Career Planning and there are Milestones that help a student and teacher/counselor keep track of their progress.

Be sure to sign up for workshops where you’ll be able to learn how to navigate this new system.
