Video: Using Pre-Tests to Address the Summer Slide

05.12.2022 | Credentialing, Why NOCTI

The “summer slide” refers to knowledge loss occurring while a student is away from the classroom during summer vacation. Career and technical education (CTE) students may be particularly vulnerable to the summer slide due to the hands-on and technical nature of instruction.

Pre-testing with NOCTI offers a way for educators to accurately determine a student’s baseline technical knowledge and identify any knowledge loss that may have occurred.
