The CareerTech Testing Center works closely with instructors, industry representatives and credentialing entities to identify and develop assessments and assessment preparation materials that are aligned with recognized industry standards.

Study guides are designed to help students prepare for the assessments. Each study guide includes information about the assessments within a content area, the standards upon which each assessment is based, test plans, practices questions and test-taking strategies. Many study guides also include a crosswalk to instructional materials that may be used during instruction or when studying for assessments.

CTTC assessments are directly aligned to assessments needed to obtain credentials that are required and/or valued by industry. Assessments measure how well the student has mastered the content deemed important by industry, and while passing a CTTC assessment is no guarantee of future success, it does provide an indication of whether or not the student is ready for certification or licensure.
