Each test has specific requirements such as prerequisites, test length, performance skills, etc. Online testing is set-up and administered by the teacher.
It is important that tests are administered in a consistent manner and that every effort is made to maintain high ethics. Any violation to the testing rules and procedures for giving Skill Certificate tests will be considered a breach of professional ethics and will be referred to the Professional Practices Commission.
Performance evaluation is a required component of the Skill Certificate process. Each student must be evaluated on the required performance skills. Performance skills may be completed and evaluated anytime during the course. Please note that the performance skills for each test can be found within the strands and standards document for the corresponding CTE course.
Below are things for instructors to remember:
Students who achieve a 3 or 4 (moderately to highly skilled) or an 80% (moderately to highly skilled) on all performance skills and 80% on the written test will be issued an Career and Technical Education Skill Certificate.
Reports and certificates will be available through the online testing system. For additional information, see Scoring and Reporting.
Note: Certification for licensure and national test information is given under the program area and title of certification or licensure.
All teachers are required to read and agree to the terms of the Instructor Agreement located on the Precision Exams testing website.
