More Guidance from the Experts for Skill Connect Assessments
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for the Champions for Change project met on October 15 at the offices of GAERF (the Graphic Arts Education and Research Foundation) in Reston, Virginia for its fall meeting. Every time we meet with these experts from industry, education (including board member Wayne Kutzer) and services to vulnerable communities, we learn new things that we put into practice as quickly as we can. And, our recent survey data of the TAC proves it. One area where the Champions for Change project is highly rated by the committee is in listening to and acting on the advice of the members.
Among the significant recommendations at the meeting: offer a free “test drive” of the assessments to teachers and administrators; tried and true methods for updating assessments as the process proceeds; strategies for building industry awareness; and, making clear how the Skill Connect assessments fit in with some of the other assessments in the field. Thanks go to Eileen Cassidy, director, GAERF, for hosting the meeting.
