Career and Technical Education

Assessment

The occupational-specific portion of the Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System is known as MS-CPAS-2. It is a Career and Technical Education (CTE) assessment used to provide a fair means of establishing accountability for both the secondary and postsecondary CTE programs

Using a student-centered approach, a trained writing team of program area experts work together to design an assessment. Their goal is to accurately evaluate each CTE program. In keeping with national guidelines and our commitment to continual  improvement, items on the assessments will be tested for validity and reliability. Assessments are aligned with the CTE program’s curriculum and are revised on the same four-year cycle as the curriculum.
