Love-Wilkes, Rebecca; Cummings, Ronda
This report on competency testing in vocational and technical education is a follow-up to previous reports published in 1988 and 1990. Section 1 summarizes the data. It describes competency testing in the 13 states that currently mandate competency testing and identifies the 11 states in which voluntary testing is occurring, the 9 states either considering or currently developing competency testing systems, and the 7 states not involved in the administration or development of a competency testing system. Two maps show the states that mandate competency testing and states developing or considering a competency testing system. Section 2 provides state-by-state status reports of competency testing. The reports appear alphabetically by state. The final section is a listing of persons in each state to contact for information about that state's activities in competency testing. They are listed alphabetically by state. (YLB)
