Assessment

Assessment for the Career Education and Work Standards can take two forms. Some assessments help the school district, building, and/or organization plan for implementation. Other assessments help students understand themselves and the world of work.

Implementation Assessments

Assess Implementation Using Standards Statements

These surveys help identify what each teacher is doing to address the Career Education and Work Standards. Use them to determine current practice in your building or district. This data is helpful when conducting a gap analysis.

Assess Implementation Using I-Statements

These surveys help identify what each teacher is doing to address the I-Statements that can be used as the foundation for a student portfolio. Use them to determine current practice in your building or district. This data is helpful when conducting a gap analysis.

Gap Analysis

To record your findings from the surveys and identify where the organization needs to increase effort to implement the standards and where there are already best practices occurring in the organization that could be expanded to serve all students, use the gap analysis chart that follows.
