What is an EDP? Why is it used?
Educational Development Plan (EDP): A document showing a student’s current interests, abilities, and career pathways. It is used to explore careers through the lens of each student’s individual interests, skills, and goals.
Eaton RESA uses Xello, an online platform, to facilitate the EDP process for students in grades 7-12. Career exploration, specifically EDP completion, is part of Eaton RESA’s mission statement and Eaton RESA has a goal of 95% of all county students completing the EDP process.
Components of the EDP Process:
- Interest Inventory
- Personality Style Inventory
- Skills Lab Inventory
- Entry of Personal Interests, Skills, Activities, and Goals
- Talent Portfolio
