End-of-Pathway Assessment
(Perkins IV Core Indicator 2S1)

Georgia, like many other career and technical education programs around the nation, has worked in recent years to establish a measurement mechanism to ascertain the level of technical skill attainment on behalf of its career pathway completers. Georgia’s measurement process has been derived in direct response to the Perkins IV Legislation, specifically, Core Indicator 2S1 which mandates states to implement a valid and reliable assessment model linked directly to industry validated standards.

In working to identify existing assessment (or credentialing) opportunities that would not only support the mandates set forth in the Perkins IV Legislation, but would also support Georgia students in their quest to leave high school with valuable credentials, the state’s technical skill attainment inventory will be comprised of several measurement components:

  • national industry certifications,
  • national occupational assessments, and
  • state licensures and state developed assessments
