Through cPass® assessments, the Career Pathways Assessment System offers a way to measure high school students' readiness for postsecondary education or entry into the workforce.

Rather than focusing on academic skills alone, cPass also measures the knowledge and skills needed for specific career pathways. With a mix of multiple-choice questions, technology-enhanced items, and performance-based tasks, cPass measures skills both in the classroom and in real-world situations.
