Lipscomb is breaking new ground in competency assessment with the first fully-integrated, competency-based program using the Polaris® system offered by a university in the country. As part of Lipscomb’s College of Professional Studies, CORE—our Customized, Outcome-based, Relevant Evaluation— is just one of many innovative programs that is addressing the way knowledge is assessed, improved and utilized.
Put our CORE team to work for your team.
CORE measures 15 competencies on a badge system, which is based on a nationally respected and Fortune 500-proven competency performance model—the Polaris® Assessment System. Companies already utilizing this system include Nike, PetSmart, Disney, Mars, Wendy’s among many others. Through past performance, the Polaris® system has a proven track record of how competencies are best measured and what competencies will work to fulfill the needs of both companies and employees. We bring that proven performance to you in a concise, innovative program with the advantage of having the added educational experience of one of the South’s top private universities. All of the Polaris® products through CORE are backed by rigorous statistical studies supporting their validity and psychometric soundness.
