Skills Standards and Assessments
The CareerTech Testing Center (CTTC) works closely with instructors, program administrators, industry representatives, and credentialing entities to ensure skills standards and assessments reflect national standards and local industry needs and meet the requirements for end-of-course and technical skills assessments.
Skills Standards outline the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to perform related jobs within an industry.
Competency Assessments test the student over material outlined in the skills standards and taught using the curriculum materials. When used with classroom performance evaluations, written competency assessments provide a means of measuring occupational readiness.
