  • WIN Soft Skills, which is designed to teach skills such as professionalism, effective communication, teamwork and collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving.

Features of myStrategicCompass include:

  • Class planning tool to help high school students map their course path to their career or college aspirations;
  • College and degree program profiles;
  • Searchable database of national scholarships and grant programs;
  • Resume and cover letter builders;
  • E-portfolio that can be emailed directly to employers;
  • Reference bank;
  • Sample and practice job applications; and
  • Kuder-powered assessments that are "designed to prompt learners to explore career pathways aligned with their interests, skills and work values.

The portal also includes career-readiness dashboards for students, facilitators and administrators that offer performance reports; digital e-badges that track content progress; downloadable digital certificates of completion/mastery; centralized user management; and WIN University, which is an online library of implementation and professional development resources.

The WIN Career Readiness System will be available in August 2014 and will support "most conventional browsers and tablets," including the iPad, Kindle Fire and Samsung tablet.
