The student achievement record represents the foundation knowledge and skill competencies for this Career Cluster. Because of the commonality of the Career Clusters, student achievement can be communicated from one program to another for the purpose of recognition and/or articulation. This tool can be used by the student themselves and when articulating curriculum between secondary and post-secondary institutions.
The achievement record can be used to measure a level of achievement which can be communicated separate from grades because the skill can be identified.
1. Exposed to Task - Students achieving at this level would be aware of the existence of the task but would not have any demonstrated competence with the task.
2. Accomplished the Task With Help - Students achieving at this level are able to perform the task with assistance. Assistance can be in the form of the time required to perform the task, a resource needed to perform the task, or a person’s help in performing the task.
3. Accomplished Task to Criterion - Students achieving at this level are able to perform the task to a criteria by themselves.
4. Ability to Teach Task - Students achieving at this level are able to perform the task well enough to teach others how to perform the task or demonstrate to others the performance of the task.
N. Not Exposed to Task - An “N” represents the fact that a student was not exposed to a particular task because of program time constraints.
The Student Achievement Record is designed to be used for each individual student. The assessment may be done in one of the following situations:
The Student Achievement Record requires each instructor to evaluate a student’s performance and indicate in the appropriate place the level of performance achieved.
NOTE: The Student Achievement Record includes all the tasks in the Career Cluster. The evaluation of student performance on individual tasks represent performance at a particular point in time. It should not imply that this task can be performed consistently at the same level without additional practice and/or instruction.
