Technical Skill Assessment
It all starts with the Program of Study. A program of study (POS) is sequential and incremental and designed to introduce, develop and reinforce academic and technical skills in an occupational field or career cluster. The POS and alignment to industry standards is absolutely the most important aspect of what we do. But how do we know the program is on track? This is where Technical Skill Assessment (TSA) comes into play. TSA is the process of documenting the technical knowledge and skills developed by the student during the program of study. The State Division of Professional-Technical Education has developed a state approved list of TSA’s for most of the programs of study.
