Question:

What is an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) scan?

Answer:

An ATS scan is used by recruiters to parse through a high volume of resumes. Its basic function is to pull out keywords in a resume to match a person's compatibility to the job description. *Special note: graphically designed resumes almost universally fail the ATS scan: keep your formats basic and keyword-heavy to get noticed by recruiters and hiring managers!

What is a higher order question?

Answer:

Higher order questions encourage students to use critical thinking beyond basic and literal question and answers. These types of questions usually involve advanced comprehension and problem solving skills. They are the initial step in writing a good thesis: we use higher order analysis to develop a well-thought out argument with solid examples.

Question:

What is the difference between the Dewey Decimal System and the Library of Congress Classification System?

Inactive

Answer:

The Dewey Decimal Classification System (DDCS) is generally used for smaller collections, most commonly seen in your local school or public library. DDCS is divided into 10 classes (or subjects), and is limited in the amount of unique call numbers. The Library of Congress Classification System (LCCS) is used for larger collections, including the Library of Congress and most higher education institutions. LCCS is arranged by disciplines and allows for more specific call numbers; it is utilized for very specific categorization. DDC Example: 636 Animal Husbandry | 636.7 Dogs; 636.8 Cats LCCS Example: LB2395 (Methods of Study in Higher Education) .C65 (Author's Last Name) 1991 (Year of Publication)
