CVTC Mission Statement “We prepare people to succeed through quality career and technical education programs and services.”
Why do we use WorkKeys & KeyTrain? Industry wants a skilled workforce! And…. It delivers!
#1 Rule…. SELL IT TO THE STUDENTS!
Compare scores with program goals and remediate with KeyTrain if nessesary
Why Pretest with WorkKeys? When a student enrolls at CVTC “Pre-testing” in WorkKeys allows students who are capable of scoring at or above their program goals to “test-out” of remediation in the KEYS Center. Yes, this costs CVTC more money but saves our students valuable class time if they perform at level and reduces the number of tests a student has to take.
How did we get to that 96%? • Never underestimating the role of the tutor
Keeping instructors informed using monthly progress reports to instructors.
Factors that effect overall percentage of students at goal level in a program: • Open entry /Open exit, people come and people go…the numbers are always changing. • IEP students may be exempt or have adjusted program goals. Many IEP students become part of the class percentage!
What will 2011 bring??? We are already on a roll! By the end of the first semester we are already at 81%!
