Free Skills Standards!

I wanted to let you know that the CareerTech Testing Center is now offering our skills standards for FREE!

We have been developing skills standards and online tests since 1980 as we work closely with instructors, program administrators, industry representatives, and credentialing entities to ensure that our 100+ skills standards and assessments reflect national standards and local industry needs.

These skills standards provide the foundation for competency-based instruction as they outline the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to perform related jobs within an industry. All of our assessments determine occupational readiness by testing the student over material outlined in the skills standards.

So What are the Uses of Skills Standards?
Skill Standards provide direction for students, instructors and program administrators in the journey towards workplace readiness.

Specifically, skills standards help instructors:
 improve program planning,
 track individualized instruction,
 facilitate discussion with local advisory committees,
 perform self-evaluations, and
 evaluate curriculum and instruction.

Skills standards also help program administrators:
 identify current job descriptions,
 document industry standards,
 guide program evaluations, and
 anticipate program growth and future challenges.

I's hard to believe that the CareerTech Testing Center can offer something so valuable for FREE.  Take a look at the standards and please use them to help develop your programs. Please contact us if you have any questions and let us know how we can help you with your online testing needs!  J.T.
