WHAT IS AN ASSESSMENT?
The National Craft Assessment and Certification process (NCACP) was developed for the construction and maintenance industries to evaluate the quality of an individual’s ability in specifics tasks and trades. Currently, TEXO offers over 60 different NCCER assessments to the DFW area. All assessments are based upon NCCER’s curricula and were developed with the guidance of Subject Matter Experts (SME).
WHAT ARE ASSESSMENTS USED FOR?
- Evaluate knowledge & skills of experienced craft technicians & workforce productivity
- Achieve higher quality construction with increased cost-effectiveness
- Provide a training prescription to guide future professional development & maximize training dollars
Companies may use assessments to measure the knowledge of incoming workers and build training programs to fill skill gaps. Please note that assessments cannot be used as a sole hiring requirement. Assessments can be done for individuals, for departments, or in functional areas. TEXO conducts assessments for the industry and works with department heads and supervisors to develop training programs to fill training gaps.
Individuals may earn credentials for experience in the construction and maintenance workplace. Candidates who make the cut score on NCCER assessments receive an NCCER ID card, an NCCER Certificate, and a permanent transcript.
Academic assessments can be used as a pre-and post-test to indicate growth in student knowledge. Assessments can also be used as a post-test at end of the semester or year to indicate student knowledge gained and instructor effectiveness. Results can be used for program improvement.
With the successful completion of any of the NCCER Assessments, credentials will be issued to an individual. NCCER credentials are permanent, stackable, portable, and recognized by the construction industry, maintenance industries, and higher education institutions, worldwide.
