long-term success

lan Boyle recently wrote a great article that talks about how many organizations are no longer just gauging success on test scores and academic excellence. Instead, they are also looking at noncognitive skills (things like grit, drive, or persistence) which actually may do a better job of predicting individuals’ long-term success.

I encourage you to take a few minutes to read Alan’s article – Noncognitive Measures: The Academic Trend that Could Change Everything. Let me know what you think.
