Job Ready and Pathway credentials may be administered as pre-tests. A pre-test is administered to determine a student’s baseline technical knowledge in a career and technical education (CTE) program. Programs using a pre-/post-test combination will receive a comparison report after the post-test is completed. This powerful tool can be used to show individual student improvement and overall program effectiveness. Across the country, NOCTI pre-tests benefit CTE students and teachers in programs at CTE centers, comprehensive high schools, community colleges, technical colleges, and universities.

When should a pre-test be administered?

Pre-tests are intended to be administered at the time a student is entering a CTE program. A pre-test can also be administered at a specific point in the curriculum when there is still time for remediation prior to program completion.
