TV Production and Audio Radio Production Assessments Available

SkillsLogoSkill Connect Assessments create a win-win situation. How? SkillsUSA engages industry, education and policy leaders throughout the process to ensure that assessments will be recognized by employers, help instructors validate their programs and provide career-seekers with proof of what they can do.

 

The Work Force Ready System helps meet Perkins IV requirements. Developed by SkillsUSA, an industry-driven organization since 1965, Skill Connect Assessments are 100% industry driven and defined. You'll find the following benefits of the assessments:

  • Interactive - Animations allow assessment of a broader range of competencies than available paper-based or text-only assessments;
  • Industry-driven – Developed by industry experts;
  • Responsive – Real-time assessment capability allows immediate grading and feedback – for students, teachers and administrators - including printing of a certificate for successful scores;
  • Diverse – Assesses employability and technical skills in more than 40 unique areas;
  • Affordable – Designed with budgets of instructional programs and individual career seekers in mind.

To maximize the value of the Skill Connect Assessments:

  • Coordinate with State CTE Directors and local instructors to ensure Perkins IV alignment;
  • Print the certificate when a successful score is earned and take it to potential employers;
  • Engage community industry leaders in the process. 

Each Skill Connect Assessment will be cross-walked to the relevant SkillsUSA Technical Standard and STEM and employability standards. LearnMate, the assessment system, allows teachers and administrators to generate reports showing these crosswalks, as well as a skill gap analysis for each candidate.
