The Online Assessment Center offers up the entirety of CEE’s assessment library to teachers. Assessments in Economics and Personal Finance at the Upper Elementary, Middle School, High School and University levels are available. The Online Assessment Center also features financial literacy assessments tied to PwC’s Earn Your FutureTM curricula. With a stated commitment to helping enhance the financial capability of youth and promote prosperity, PwC launched Earn Your FutureTM, a $160 million, multi-year investment centered on two goals: helping students develop critical financial skills and providing educators with the resources and training to teach those skills. PwC’s Earn Your FutureTM curricula are composed of easy-to-follow lesson plans accompanied by interactive handouts. The curricula is free and available to download for easy access to financial literacy education. There are 30 financial literacy modules spanning grades 3 through 12 and that cover Saving & Investing, Career Exploration, and Planning & Money Management topics.
