    The Kuder System in Nebraska

    Summary Nebraska Career Connections (www.nebraskacareerconnections.org), powered by Kuder®, continues to impact thousands of students each year and provide educators and state leaders with important data and reporting capabilities. In order to improve the career futures of students and adults in your state and around the world, we continually strive to provide the best quality, most comprehensive, and highly reliable system available. It is because of your support that this is possible in Nebraska. The information and data contained in this report was collected from the statewide usage of Nebraska Career Connections.

    System Usage After four years of use within the state, 90,881 individuals have started a lifelong Kuder® Career Portfolio and more than 157,000 assessments have been completed. As of May 1, 2010, 460 sites have signed up to use the system. A site is an institution or organization where the system is being administered to individuals or being accessed and utilized by an administrator. A site may be a school, career center, college, government agency, etc.

    The interests and skills assessments within Nebraska Career Connections provide results and reporting aligned to the States’ 16 Career Clusters, while the work values inventory reports on 12 work related characteristics.

    Assessment Usage Comparison These charts compare the amount of assessments completed for the last three years of usage and includes the three assessments provided within Nebraska Career Connections: Kuder® Career Search with Person Match (interests), Kuder® Skills Assessments, and Super’s Work Values Inventory.

    Portfolio Usage Another indicator of usage is the number of personal learning plans, notes, and résumés that have been started by system users. Administrators have the capability to review the progress of these components through their administrative database in order to provide additional guidance.

    Assessment Usage The graphs on the following pages provide a detailed breakdown from the completion of the three assessments during the 2009- 10 year. The data provided by the graphs is available through the Administrative Database Management System.

    Kuder® Career Search with Person Match The interest assessment provides results empirically aligned to the States’ 16 Career Clusters, the clustering system promoted by the States’ Career Clusters Initiative (SCCI). According to the SCCI, the 16 clusters, such as Finance and Health Science, represent all career possibilities. They are an ideal way to organize instruction and student experiences.

    Outreach & Support In order to promote Nebraska Career Connections and increase ongoing system usage, Kuder continues to connect with Nebraska users in a variety of ways.

    Training & Conferences Kuder Field Trainers spent the year traveling throughout the state administering on-site training, conducting presentations, and attending conferences. Each year, Kuder contacts all Educational Service Units (ESUs) to offer training sessions.

    A face-to-face training session with a Kuder representative is the most effective way to learn more about Nebraska Career Connections and find unique ways to integrate it into the classroom or career guidance program. We also offer online training sessions and informational sessions. A face-to-face session is conducted on-site in Nebraska, provides a hands-on demonstration of the system, and is typically held in a computer lab. An online session is conducted over the phone via a Go-To-Meeting with a Kuder representative guiding the attendees through the system. An informational session is also an on-site session. It does not provide a hands-on demonstration, but allows the attendees to listen to a presentation on use of Nebraska Career Connections.

    In addition to conducting training sessions, Kuder also attended a number of conferences in Nebraska in order to visit with customers, encourage more schools to sign up to use the system, and conduct best practice presentations to increase system usage. Kuder representatives attended the following conferences:

    ` Nebraska Counseling Association conference.

    ` Nebraska School Counselor Association conference.

    ` Nebraska Career Education conference.

    Communication & Support In order to keep Nebraska schools up to date on system updates and news, Kuder distributes periodic e-mails and provides our quarterly newsletter, Kuder User News, to all administrators, counselors, and teachers of Nebraska Career Connections. Look for the next issue of Kuder User News on May 19. The Kuder Customer Support team provides ongoing online and telephone support to the schools in Nebraska. Customer support is available, free of charge, to answer questions, provide additional training, and gather feedback on the system.

    A survey will also be sent again this year to Kuder customers to determine their level of customer support and training satisfaction as well as gather more information about how they use the system. Last year, over 560 responses were logged for each question with the vast majority of responses showing positive results and feedback. This survey will be distributed in conjunction with the May 19 issue of Kuder User News.

    Our customer support and field training team continues to hear many positive comments from the Nebraska Career Connections users they work with every day. The lesson plans that were added last year for core school subjects such as Math, Science, English and Social Studies have been great tools to help integrate the system into the classroom.
