PLTW Student Opportunities Roundup - Summer 2019
Learn about a few of the many exciting opportunities currently available to PLTW students:
What? The PLTW End-of-Course (EoC) Assessment offers PLTW high school students a way to prove their strengths and showcase their potential. Through PLTW’s many partnerships with colleges, universities, businesses, and industries, a student may be eligible for opportunities like scholarships, admissions preferences, internships, and more! PLTW does not share a student’s EoC Assessment information unless the student elects to share his or her scores through the My Assessments section of their myPLTW account. Score sharing allows PLTW partners the chance to proactively consider and recruit qualified candidates for opportunities like preferred admissions, college scholarships, dual credit, internships, career experiences, and more.
When? Students may elect to share their scores at any time during their high school tenure.
Where? Students can elect to share their EoC Assessment scores through the My Assessments section of their myPLTW account.
Who? Any PLTW high school student who has completed or will complete a PLTW EoC Assessment during their high school tenure and wishes to share those scores with PLTW partners, such as colleges, universities, businesses, and industries.
