What will these tests be used for?

The career pathways tests will help indicate if and/or when a student is ready to enter a postsecondary program, apprenticeship, or entry-level position in or closely related to their program of study. These tests will not be a “licensure” test where a student who achieves a passing score is eligible for a certain career or program. Instead, the tests are a tool for postsecondary programs and industries to determine if a student is ready for a specific career.
