memo© Tool is a survey-based instrument designed to help universities to learn more about their students to develop their full potential and to enhance their employability. It provides your policy with evidence based on cutting-edge research in psychometrics.
According to the Erasmus Impact Study from 2014, European employers consider personality traits more important for recruitment than sector-specific skills. 92% of them claimed to value highly memo©-measured personality traits such as curiosity, confidence, decisiveness, self-awareness and tolerance of ambiguity.
... but 81% believe they have improved. That reveals that students themselves are not very accurate in evaluating the effect of their mobility experience on their personality traits. Psychometrics-based measures can therefore add a lot of information to perceptional questionnaires.
The Confidence, Tolerance, Problem-solving, Curiosity, Self-assessment, Self-awareness, Decisiveness, Sociability, Position-defending and Adaptability of each student are measured by the memo© tool. Learn more about them.
In addition to normal memo© clients, the Erasmus Impact Study brought in more than 70 000 participants and the InHoPe study nearly 10 000. More participants are joining every year - be one of them. Click to learn more about the universities we cooperate with and their experience.
A consortium led by CHE Consult, the creator of memo©, will conduct a large scale study of the effect volunteering has on young people, their communities and hosting as well as sending organisations. The data collection, applying also the memo© methodology, will take place in 2016 and results are expected to be published in 2017.
