CTE Assessment

There is an old education phrase, "What gets tested, gets taught." Tests and assessments are essential for learning. This applies to Career and Technical Education as well.  In spite of public concerns on standardized assessment in education, assessments are positive aspects in Career and Technical Education programs -- often a requirement for earning an industry credential or certification.  The challenge for CTE teachers is understanding and preparing students for industry assessments and also preparing and using authentic assessments in the classroom.
