Career and Technical Education Performance Assessment
Performance assessments are designed to judge student abilities to apply specific knowledge and research skills in a “hands-on” platform. Performance assessments often require the student to manipulate specialized equipment to solve a problem or make an analysis. Rich performance assessments should reveal a variety of problem solving approaches, thus providing insight into a student’s level of conceptual and procedural knowledge.
The first administration of the West Virginia Career & Technical Education EducateWV Performance Assessment Program was piloted in the spring of 2009. As is the industry standard, each assessment has been reviewed by West Virginia administrators, teachers, staff members of the West Virginia Department of Education and by West Virginia citizens. Additionally, each assessment has been examined and re-examined for bias, content, rigor, complexity, and alignment to the West Virginia Content Standards and Objectives (CSOs) and Performance Descriptors as well as industry scenarios (providing real-world examples).
