Reporting & Data
Measuring What Matters
Learn to expect more than simply a total score or a pass/fail. NOCTI’s in-depth score reporting provides educators the data needed for recognizing student achievement, promoting continuous program and instructional improvement, and meeting regulatory requirements. NOCTI’s standard score report package includes individual, group, and comparative reports. Sub-scores included in the report assist in identifying student and program gains as well as areas for improvement.
Normative Data & Cut Scores
Normative data includes average scores for groups, testing sites, as well as state and national averages. A criterion-referenced cut score sets the point on a test at which a participant could be considered a minimally competent candidate, or one who is ready for an entry-level position in the chosen field. Both normative data and criterion-referenced cut scores are included on the standard score reports for all Job Ready and Pathway credentials. This information can be a helpful resource when analyzing score results for gauging student knowledge and determining program improvement needs. Please contact us if you wish to access this data.
Our Report Package
- Individual score reports are provided for each participant. Scores are provided for each standard and a pre/post-test comparison is provided if a pre-test was administered.
A group report is provided for the entire testing group. This report gives standard and competency results for each participant and can assist with analyzing a group’s performance and identifying potential program improvements.
Analysis of Scores Report

Competency Reports are part of the standard score report package for all NOCTI credentialing assessments, as well as for many of our Partner Network programs. Analyzing Competency Reports is beneficial for discussing student learning methods and overall areas in need of improvement. The competency summary extract provides the ability to pull data on a variety of filters, resulting in a data extract that is customized to your needs.
