www.eduscopio.it is the web portal that helps families and students choose the secondary school that’s best for them
The new, 2022 edition of Eduscopio.it by Fondazione Agnelli is now online, with updated data on the secondary schools that best prepare students for university or employment after graduation.
The portal – which launched in 2014 and has always been free to access – aims to help students and their families choose the best education path after junior secondary school. Throughout the years, approximately 2.4 million unique users have visited Eduscopio.it, viewing over 11.6 million pages – statistics that prove how families and schools appreciate this resource.
Eduscopio.it allows students to compare different schools with the specialisation they are interested in and in the area where they live, based on how well they prepare their graduates for university or for employment.
“The information, data and comparisons between schools found on the portal – according to the Director of Fondazione Agnelli, Andrea Gavosto – can be truly useful to make educational choices in all families, and especially in those that have fewer resources and less developed social networks. Obviously, Eduscopio cannot be the only tool: indeed, a comprehensive reform of orientation in the choice of students’ secondary school is envisaged by the NRRP, but is receiving little attention. In any case, in addition to providing information to students and families, Eduscopio helps us understand other important phenomena. This year, for example, the data tell us that Covid has had strong repercussions on graduates from technical and professional institutes who choose to look for work instead of going on to university: the aggregate employment rate calculated by Eduscopio for 2019 graduates who sought employment in the midst of the pandemic was 11% lower than for 2017 graduates. After the sharp drop in learning recorded by the Invalsi standard testing in 2021 and 2022, the pandemic therefore risks leaving its mark also on the job prospects of this generation.”
For the new edition of Eduscopio.it, the working group coordinated by Martino Bernardi analysed data regarding 1,289,000 Italian graduates from 7,700 schools in three consecutive academic years (2016/2017, 2017/2018, 2018/2019).
