Information on End-of-Pathway Assessments:

Georgia, like many other career, technical and agricultural education (CTAE) programs around the nation, has worked to establish a measurement mechanism to ascertain the level of technical skill attainment on behalf of its career pathway completers. Georgia’s measurement process has been derived in direct response to the Perkins IV Legislation, which mandates states to implement a valid and reliable assessment model linked directly to industry validated standards.

In meeting this mandate, Golden Isles Career Academy (GICA) administers End-of-Pathway Assessments to students who have completed a career pathway within the past two semesters. The purpose of the End-of-Pathway Assessments (EOPAs) is to measure the occupational and technical competencies of individual students and classes and to compare those competencies with state and national norms. This assessment does NOT determine a passing or failing grade for the course. However, it is one instrument of many that helps us to acquire meaningful assessment data and to improve the quality of career and technical education at GICA.

Students who meet minimal standards will receive a national Certificate of Completion endorsed by industry. The certificate can be a valuable credential when seeking employment or when qualifying your student for postsecondary credit at a college or university. The number of CTAE pathway completers who earn industry certification is used in determining post high school readiness in the College and Career Ready Performance Index, High School Model Grade 9 – 12.
