Ohio Pathway Testing Project

These are some milestones of a CETE project to redesign the testing system for high school students in career-technical education (CTE). Beginning in 2008-09, CETE project teams worked with instructors across the state to develop about 35 pathway tests (> 15,000 items) across Ohio career fields (see the table below for Ohio Career Fields and the closest national Career Cluster). The sponsor is the Ohio Department of Education, Office of CTE (ODE-CTE) and a close collaborator is the Ohio Board of Regents (OBR).
