Winter Pretesting Window Opens January 2, 2020.

The use of pretests can help document student gain, along with the observations and measurements conducted directly by the instructor and other local district staff. The window for winter pretesting is January 2nd through January 31st, 2020.

A list of all available pretests can be found on the WebXam about the tests page.

To learn more about the pretests offered by WebXam, please visit the WebXam pretest documentation page.

Posttesting Reminders

As a reminder, students must take the posttest on or before April 24th, 2020, to receive a student gain calculation, which LEA must report to the state by June 12th, 2020. CETE is currently considering several options for dealing with repeated non-compliance going forward.

Posttests and field tests will still be available during the winter pretesting window, so it is important to activate the correct test.

We are writing for Construction during the 2019-2020 school year. Workshops are in progress and we still need SMEs specifically in Fundamentals of Architecture & Construction, Construction Management and Safety, Construction Site Preparation and Heavy Equipment, Architecture, and Interior Design. If you are an instructor for this career field in any courses, we need you to help us write new items for end-of-course tests. If you are interested in participating for these writing workshops, please visit http://go.osu.edu/item-writing and tell us more about yourself. Be sure to sign up today - SMEs are KEY to CETE!
