New Education Study by Adobe

Adobe’s new study, The Deciding Factor, is a case for measuring student success in a more holistic way. Here is the TLTR breakdown.

The college admissions process has become more focused on holistic and creative measurements when considering applicants in recent years. However, high school counselors and college admissions counselors do not place as high of an emphasis on creativity when preparing students. These skills are considered so highly by admissions professionals because of their importance on campus and beyond.

Since COVID, the trend of holistic college admissions has increased while hard, academic metrics have decreased. Skills like creativity and communication have become more important factors. Although it is agreed that creativity and communication are important most students do not know where to showcase these skills in their applications. Most students have a desire for more of a focus on creativity in their classes.

There is a need to evolve the admissions process to evaluate students beyond typical standardized testing and hard skills. Since colleges are looking for soft skills to be demonstrated by applicants there needs to be a solution to incorporate a way to evaluate those skills.

WHY DOES THIS MATTER TO YOU?
