Labor Market Data
Learners take Conley Readiness Index (CRI) as self analysis, with normed self-reporting, and receive their own Student Report outlining results and suggestions. They then work to develop their strengths and improve upon their areas of weakness.
Educators and administrators receive a range of reports outlining Readiness Dimensions, Student Aspirations, Item Analysis, and Pre- and Post-comparison. They also have access to individual Student Reports.
The results of Conley Readiness Index CRI can also be interpreted in terms of three distinct learner profiles, each having a set of recommended interventions or actions associated with it, yielding a personalized action program for each learner. Profiles showing mastery of more Four Keys elements can predict better performance.
Pearson then analyzes the local Labor Market Data available and makes recommendations for skill development opportunities within our solutions, in relation to what the Labor Market and Conley Readiness Index data have revealed.

Real-time, detailed, job market data enables education leadership to tailor their curricula to support and guide local employment initiatives. When you know which companies are hiring, you can provide insight and guidance to learners who want to set themselves apart and secure work or upskill at their current jobs.
Companies have provided extremely positive feedback about the caliber of candidates they've hired from educational institutions who were aware of their needs. They are performing well above expectations and are progressing rapidly, in line with the organization’s business objectives.
When Labor Market Data is combined with Conley Readiness Index, students better understand how they should spend their time and what adjustments they need to make to meet their goals.
