YouScience on Scoir – www.scoir.comYouScience is a one-of-a-kind career discovery profile designed to help students better understand their natural abilities, broaden awareness of career opportunities, and make more informed decisions about their individual pathway from school to career. Instead of the traditional interest assessments given in the past, YouScience utilizes interactive activities/games to assess student aptitudes and interests, leading to information that can be helpful when identifying “best fit” career options. Since YouScience measures aptitudes (or natural abilities), this is not the type of assessment that students take multiple times throughout high school. With this in mind, YouScience can only be completed one time per account. School counselors cannot reset this assessment. Learn more about YouScience and accessing it on a student Scoir account!
