Welding Performance Assessment
The Ohio Department of Education Office of Career-Technical Education is investing in a Welding Performance Assessment so that learners can demonstrate their skills by producing a 1G (flat-groove) weld.
A guidebook provides an outline of procedures to conduct the pilot test for the four Welding Courses during 2019-20. Included are the Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS), a Scoring Checklist, screenshots of the WebXam User Interface for assessors and students, and procedural suggestions.
After the pilot test ends, a statewide field test will be conducted during the 2020-21 school year, with materials finalized after the field test is complete, and the system will be launched in 2021-22.
