Portfolios From Cirkled In Help Students Tell Their Real Story
Thousands of colleges across the country are abandoning test scores and instead looking at the whole student. For the schools that are still looking at test scores, they’re also looking at the whole student as well. In many cases that means that colleges and universities are turning to Google searches and social media to get a grasp of their student applicants. This rarely ends well.
Cirkled In is an edtech startup providing a portfolio platform that helps students deliver their entire self rather than just some grades and test scores.
In this new world of college recruiting admissions departments want a wholistic view of the applicant. With Cirkled In students can tell their whole story. The easy to use, and free for students platform, let’s students highlight their extra curricular activities, academics, grades, achievements and more. That student that sat first chair trombone from 9th-12th grade now has a place to show that off. Not only that but with a wide range of media options like images, videos, presentations, pics, videos and more, students can create an entire portfolio experience giving their admissions person a true snapshot. Cirkled In allows students to store all their information in one easy place. Teachers and coaches can even give recommendations right on your Cirkled In Portfolio.
High Schools and middle schools love Cirkled In because it helps students prepare for being discovered by the colleges they WANT to go to. It also helps schools track alumni and replicate success and improve classroom and counselor efficiency. Schools are even charting student success tracking where they end up whether it’s college, apprenticeship, entrepreneurship or something else. Cirkled In is the perfect platform for students and teachers.
