NOCTI is currently developing an exciting new credentialing opportunity. Students earn digital badges for micro-credentials to demonstrate mastery of specific competencies. Stay tuned for more information.

We have implemented our services at both the local and state levels. NOCTI offers off-the-shelf credential options, customized test development, custom system development, and training and professional development. We have assisted many districts and states by coordinating comprehensive assessment programs tailored to specific educational needs.

NOCTI offers teacher assessments in over 50 technical areas. These assessments are administered through NOCTI’s nationwide Area Test Center network. Individual states and/or higher education institutions determine how the assessments and results will be used.

NOCTI utilizes several different test types to provide the most comprehensive services. Pre-testing determines a student’s baseline knowledge, identifies strengths, and pinpoints knowledge gaps. The knowledge-based component measures factual and theoretical knowledge about an occupation, while the skill-based portion measures the corresponding hands-on skills. Pilot testing allows schools to try newly developed or revised credentials at no cost.
