A GUIDE TO STUDENT OCCUPATIONAL COMPETENCY TESTING
Pennsylvania utilizes two methods of measuring the occupational competency of career and technical education students. The two methods are assessments from the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) and the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS). NOCTI's Job Ready tests are designed to measure an individual's knowledge of basic processes including the identification and use of terminology and tools. Job Ready tests can be used for both secondary and postsecondary education as well as business and industry applications.
