Next Steps for Using RATE™

RATE™ uses the Career Readiness Core Competency framework developed by the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota.  

The branding and look of RATE™ can be customized to match the branding of your institution. The footer of RATE™ contains the statement: “RATE™ is powered by the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota."

  1. We recommend reviewing  all of the implementation steps and scheduling a conversation with Judy Anderson (Director of Career Readiness) and Colin McFadden (Technology Architect) by emailing and to discuss the implementation of RATE™ at your institution.  
  2. After deciding on an implementation plan, acquire a license for RATE™ via the licensing website.  
  3. During the implementation process, we may need to connect with several possible technical collaborators from your institution. These may include:
    • Identity management / authentication administrator 
    • Domain Name System (DNS) administrator
    • Learning Management System administrator
  4. Set up a meeting with instructors for integrating from a pedagogical and technology perspective with members from our Career Readiness Teaching Fellows team. This can be coordinated by contacting Judy Anderson, Director of Career Readiness, at
