The EDUindex Gap Report is the detail that a school’s EDUindex represents. It shows the Standard Occupational Codes (SOC) codes represented within the Standard Industry Codes (SIC) codes that have been weighted by volume for the school's zip code; and consequently the resultant classes that can better be represented, as well as already fulfilled, from what the school provides and what also is needed; reported per the Classification of Secondary School Courses (CSSC) .
The Gap Report provides information that can be used to add relevant perspective to classes already provided, as well as include electives that may have been missed that are significantly needed. EDUindex, Inc. does not want to dilute core classes for college bound students but wants to make the curriculum related thereto relevant. The intuitive nature of the EDUindex and Gap Report information is welcomed.
Some have said, “If we had more applied mathematics, perhaps we wouldn’t have had all the people jump on board with 125% loans lately, because they may have better understood the over-all ramifications." Some have said, “If we addressed game technology in school head-on and the skills needed thereto, perhaps students would be more motivated in that we are timely in understanding their world.”
The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) is a United States government system of classifying occupations. Users of occupational data include government program managers, industrial and labor relations practitioners, students considering career training, job seekers, vocational training schools, and employers wishing to set salary scales or locate a new plant. It is designed to cover all occupations in which work is performed for pay or profit, reflecting the current occupational structure in the United States.
The USA's SOC includes 822 occupational types. The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) is a United States government system for classifying industries by a four-digit code. It is being supplanted by the six-digit North American Industry Classification System; however certain government departments and agencies, such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), still use the SIC codes.
The Classification of Secondary School Courses (CSSC) provides a general inventory of courses taught nationwide in the secondary school level (grades 9 through 12). Public, Charter, and Private School Data is accessed per geographical area. Curriculum per School, District, etc. is published individually and is publicly available
