KDE Career Ready Model Must meet one requirement in Academic and Technical to be considered Career Ready. Academic •ASVAB •WorkKeys •Applied Math •Locating Information •Reading for Information Technical •KOSSA •Industry Certificates
KDE College and Career Ready Model
COMPASS •Developed by ACT as a college placement test •Evaluates student skill levels in Reading, Writing Skills, Writing Essay, Math, and English as a Second Language •Used to place students in appropriate courses at the postsecondary level •Used to connect students to the resources they need to achieve academic success Source: *Alternative test for students not meeting ACT benchmark
KYOTE Kentucky Online Testing •Used by almost all Kentucky universities and colleges as a placement assessment for all incoming freshmen who did not meet the ACT benchmark reading and math Source: s/Commissioner+of+Education/Commissioner+Hollidays+Bl og/A+Best+Practice+in+Kentucky+Schools.htm s/Commissioner+of+Education/Commissioner+Hollidays+Bl og/A+Best+Practice+in+Kentucky+Schools.htm *Alternative test for students not meeting ACT or COMPASS benchmark
WorkKeys •Developed by ACT •Measures abilities in Communication, Problem Solving, Interpersonal Skills and Personal Skills •Based on performance in Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information, individuals may obtain ACT’s National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). –Platinum –Gold –Silver –Bronze Source: WorkKeys, An Overview
ASVAB Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Test •Most widely administered aptitude test in the United States •Results are used to predict the ability to learn skills •No military items are included •Helps predict success in a wide range of jobs •Measures Verbal Skills, Math Skills and Science/Technical Skills •334 items; 2 ½ hour session Source: Technical Manual for the ASVAB 18/19 and the ASVAB Counselor Manual
KOSSA Kentucky Occupational Skill Standards Asse ssment •1996 charge by the Governor to assemble business and industry representatives to develop standards in high-demand occupational areas •Skill Standards are categorized into three major skill sets: Academic, Employability, and Technical Skills •Developed as a measure of technical skill attainment for senior preparatory students in career and technical education as a part of Perkins accountability •Used as a tool for program improvement •Opportunity for articulated credit at the postsecondary level in some areas Source: Kentucky Department of Education, Office of Next Generation Learners
Industry Certification •Developed by and used for a specific industry •Various industries have designated standards for certificates, certifications and licensures •Certificates may allow individuals to enter directly into the workforce •Recognized as a as a measure of technical skill attainment for senior preparatory students in career and technical education as a part of Perkins accountability Source: 705 KAR 4:231, Section 11; Industry-Recognized Certificate Programs and Job Corps: Working Toward a Skilled and Qualified Workforce published by MTC Institute
KOSSA The KOSSA test results are imported from KOSSA to TEDS during the first week of August each year. Schools are able to view/edit the KOSSA data after it is imported until the data is locked on October 1 st each year.
KOSSA DATES •KOSSA ing – November 1, 2011 •KOSSA Registration Due – December 16, 2011 •Testing Window – February 1-29, 2012 •Scenario Scoring – March 19-20, 2012 (tentative) •KOSSA Results Shipped – May 7, 2012 (tentative) •Item Analysis – June 2012
STUDENT OBJECTIVE •The student ‘objective’ indicates whether a student is included in accountability reporting or not. If a student meets the definition of a preparatory student, the value in the ‘student objective’ field must be changed to ‘preparatory’. There are no exceptions. •Students whose objective is ‘exploring’ are included in enrollment/participation reports but not included in accountability reports, except for the Perkins nontraditional participation measurement and College and Career Readiness measurement.
Exploring students: •New students must be enrolled in at least one technical education course to be entered into the TEDS database. •New students are entered with ‘exploring’ in the student objective field and changed to ‘preparatory’ when they meet the requirements.
Exploring students: –If student is enrolled in an exploratory program the student objective is automatically ‘exploring’. –Student has less than 3 technical credit hours in a preparatory program/career major (secondary). –Student is not included in Perkins IV performance measure calculations (except for nontraditional participation) –Student is included in College and Career Readiness measurement
Preparatory students: Any student who has enrolled in CTE courses and has successfully completed 3 or more technical credit hours in the same program/career major –The number of technical credit hours is cumulative for the time the student has been enrolled in that technical program. –Technical credit hours may be earned during different school years and be counted in the cumulative number of hours for that program.
When To Enroll A Secondary Student: Secondary students should be entered into TEDS when the student has enrolled in the first course in the technical education program. The student will be enrolled by the school offering the program in which the student is enrolled.
•After all Industry Certificates have been entered for your students, run the Industry Certificates Report to check your data. •Only valid Industry Certificates entered into TEDS by July 31st will be included in the initial data pulled for the College and Career Readiness measure. •Industry Certificate data received after July 31 st must be entered into TEDS before the data is locked at COB on October 1st.
The following slides include: •Steps to enter Career Readiness data for students •Steps to run reports to verify the Career Readiness data
ENTERING INDUSTRIAL CERTIFICATES INTO TEDS
•TO ENTER STUDENT DATA INTO TEDS •Sign in to TEDS and select as the School Year. •Select the name of the Program in which the student is enrolled from the list of programs in the navigation tree on the left side of the TEDS screen. (Figure 1) Figure 1
Click on the Career Readiness link next to the name of the program section in which the student is enrolled. (Figure 2) Figure 2
•A list of all students enrolled in that program section will be displayed. Use the Search Criteria options to shorten the list if looking at a certain cohort of students, such as preparatory seniors. (Figure 3) •The SSN and SSID are displayed next to each student’s name. A drop-down box for entering a WorkKeys Certificate Level and a field for entering the ASVAB (AFQT) score are also across from each student name. A link to the Industry Certificates data for each student is on the far right side of each line. •See the following specific instructions for entering each type of data.
