Here are important updates related to the COVID-19 emergency from the Office of Career and Technical Education and Student Transition (OCTEST) regarding career and technical education (CTE) end-of-program (EOP) pilot assessments for the 2019-2020 academic year.

2019-2020 CTE End-of-Program Pilot Assessments – Accounting, Financial Services, Automation Engineering, Civil Engineering, Engineering Design and Mechanical Engineering

All pilot assessments and testing windows have been canceled for this school year. OCTEST plans to complete pilots in fall 2020. Testing windows for the pilots will be released this summer or when more details are available to assist schools and students with planning for these pilot assessments.

With successful pilots in fall 2020, the plan is to continue to offer these new valid EOP assessments in spring 2021. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
