SkillsUSA Career Essentials: Assessments

Formerly Work Force Ready System Skill Connect Assessments

With SkillsUSA Career Essentials: Assessments, we can now provide a path to other professional certi­fications and pave the way ahead for our future workforce.

The SkillsUSA Career Essentials suite provides assessments for career and technical education that are supported by industry, education and policy leaders. SkillsUSA Career Essentials: Assessments parallels SkillsUSA’s successful philosophy of hands-on, authentic methods. The system helps instructors prove the benefit of their programs and helps students develop rewarding careers.

Available in more than 40 technical and employability areas, including co-branded ones with ASE/AYES and PrintED/GAERF, the assessments offer a reliable evaluation of technical knowledge and skill. Assessments are supported by a comprehensive system that makes administration simple. They are designed to be used for end-of-unit, end-of-course or end-of-program, depending on the design of your curriculum.

Advances in media technology have made it possible to deliver rich-in-media assessments that are much more than electronic versions of a paper-pencil test. To ensure clarity, items are multiple-choice and drag-and-drop with photographs, videos, animations and illustrations.

Each assessment consists of approximately 50 questions and takes an estimated 60 minutes to complete. Questions are delivered in random order.
