For this response paper I took The Princeton Review Career Quiz. The purpose of this assessment is to help individual see what career option is the best fit. Even though this assessment does not lead us to our jackpot career it gives us an idea in the path we may end up by evaluating our interest and personality. I remember taking this assessment when I was in high school and almost a decade year later I’m doing another one in m graduate year. Overall, I am excited re-taking this assessment to visualize whether or not I’m moving into the right direction based on this assessment.

If someone was to ask me how I would review myself as a student when I was in high school I would laugh. But if I was that same high school kid and was asked how I would review a 19 year old man in his first year of community college I would look to him as an example of someone who is destined to be successful. Rewinding back to my high school career I faced a few challenges, ones that I have accomplished and ones that I am working hard on overcoming. I faced ADHD issues in my life as well as procrastination in almost every one of my classes. Even today as a freshman at McHenry County College I have got into old habits of procrastination and staying attentive. But as a student who strives for success I do not let my weaknesses define me, I learn from them so I will not make the same mistakes in my future college endeavors. An academic strength I would like to point out is my ability to manage my time wisely, which is something I have worked hard on since I graduated in May of 2016 to today. I use calendars, reminders on my phone, and planners so that I can be the student I had wanted to be when I was in high school. My last academic strength I will point out is my passion to be successful today and tomorrow. I make goals and I complete them. From saving up my money to buy my first car, to starting off strong in my first year of community college and finishing my first semester with all A’s, which is something I will achieve. Overall, I believe a mindset to be successful in
“I got a 1810 on the SAT plus I have a 4.0, and I already got into UGA so I'm going to most likely apply to their honors college then become a veterinarian.” This a comment commonly heard by classmates of mine, and as you can see these kids have their entire life planned out right now. Although other students like me aren't as fortunate to have their entire life prearranged in high school. In life we can set ourselves up for the best possible outcome, we can try our best, do our best, and hope for the best, but ultimately it is all up to fate. Even though I may not have my entire life decided, as of now I do have an idea; and I’ve been working to build characteristics about my self to help propel me in the right direction. Persistence and
Introduction As we prepare to enter high school, students choose their classes in alignment with their dream jobs. The process can be tough, as many variables involved with careers will change by the time we are prepared to enter our fields, and college is a more complicated step in between. In order to best navigate the storm of career preparation, it is wisest to base our decisions on our skills and interests rather than the appeal of a “cool” job. Through the College Foundation of North Carolina, we can navigate through every step of the process based on scientific data through surveys. This report explores my personal recommendations as I go through the CFNC process.
At SCHOOL NAME career interventions will help the students become more career aware and developed for the nearing future. In the study of 2000, The Effects of a Two-Semester Career Exploration Intervention Class on… Scores of High School Seniors, “the results demonstrated that the intervention significantly improved students’ awareness and career exploration behavior. After..., 56% of the experimental group scored in the High Profile Type both attitude and knowledge compared to 16% of the control and 22.7% of the national norm”(O’Hara 1). In other words, after career development intervention, those students scored better than the average person as well as the student control group. As a result, the career interventions will help students apply

Educational Goals and Philosophy Most individuals can recall when they were very young saying, “When I grow up, I want to be a . . . ” For some people, over the course of growing up their ambitions changed several times. But for many, they ended up in a career which was a life long desire, goal, or ambition. Today, students must begin to think about their future on a more serious note than that of childhood during the latter part of their middle school years. This is during their eighth grade year usually, which is a year or two younger now than just a few years past. But, the reason for this is still the same. This will enable students to gear their education in a route which will hopefully benefit them after high school
To achieve student success, I thought students had to be part of an extracurricular activity or take AP classes everyone else was afraid to take, or maybe even do both at the same time and still keep their grades stable and participate in the clubs or sports that they’re in. All the research came from watching a research documentary and from reading research articles. Luckily I was partially correct, the reason this is because Anaheim schools can improve student success if the following changes take place: shorter summer vacations, congratulating and complimenting students for their hard work instead of complimenting how smart they are, and by making it mandatory that students are part of a club or sport.

Design a Study Teachers who have higher expectations of their student’s abilities will have a higher academic achievement as compared to teachers who have low expectations of their students abilities. In this study, the independent variable is the expectation of the teachers on their student’s abilities, and the dependent variable is the student achievements based upon the teacher expectations. The achievements can be measured by monitoring classrooms in a high school setting for English class for one year, with some classes having a teacher with high expectations, and other classes having a teacher with low expectations. The achievements would be measured by a preliminary assessment, test results, quarterly reports, and an end of year
