The SC Dept of Ed’s Office of Career and Technology Education has developed and piloted tests for high school career and technology education (CATE) program completers in a number of areas. Completers are students who take four courses in a particular CATE program. We are now at the point of setting cut scores for the tests (to determine pass-fail status) and need business-industry input to complete the task. We are requesting the assistance of two subject matter experts (SMEs) in Building Construction and one in Carpentry to participate in 3-hr small group work sessions with two of the teachers who helped develop each test. This activity will be led by our consortium, CTECS, and is taking place during the SC Education and Business Summit, our annual conference, at the TD Center in Greenville. CTECS will provide instruction in the process, and we will cover conference registration which includes all conference activities and meals Sun through Wed.

  • Building Construction group, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Room 100-B, TD Convention Center, Wed, June 27 
  • Carpentry group, 1:00-4:00 p.m., Room 100-A, TD Convention Center, Wed, June 27
