Results that Impact Your Students' Future.
In a rapidly changing economy, students with in-demand, transportable skills – including problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication, and ethical reasoning – are most likely to thrive throughout their education and careers.
The PLTW End-of-Course Assessments were designed with insights and validation from more than 450 PLTW educators, higher education representatives, and industry experts.
Students who take the assessments receive detailed score reports that include a scale score ranging from 100 to 600, a corresponding Achievement Level Descriptor – either Novice, Practiced, Accomplished, or Distinguished – and the level of student knowledge within specific skill clusters, including transportable skills, assessed on a scale of one to six.
Students use their test results to qualify for internships and apprenticeships, earn college credit, or bolster college applications or resumes.
