Abstract:

Today's webcast topic is Next Steps in Technical Skills Assessment. The National Assessment for Vocational Education, or NAVE, report has been available for several months. One of the identified means of that study is to focus more on technical skills attainment. When that need is compounded with increasing interest in career clusters, industry clusters and industry skill certification, the result is a nationwide mandate for technical skill assessment. In this webcast, learn how states are responding to these interests and how career and technical education can provide technical training and technical assessment to the benefit of participating students, employers, and the economy.
