Meghan Brenneman, Ed.D., Director of Character Assessment Programs & Christina Dotchin, Director of Outreach, The Enrollment Management Association

Character skills are increasingly becoming part of the conversation around student selection and success. This presentation explores the innovations in assessment that are facilitating the measurement of non-cognitive skills. For two years, The Enrollment Management Association worked with admission leaders in over 30 independent schools to develop The Character Skills Snapshot, rolling out in beta to the wider independent school admission community in fall 2017. Learn about The Character Skills Snapshot and its potential to add valuable student data to the applicant file.
