Test Specifications

Career Pathways assessments base their subject matter on blueprints. Blueprints set out the requisite knowledge and skills necessary to be prepared for postsecondary education or work in a given field. cPass® blueprints are developed in consultation with educators and industry professionals with subject matter expertise, who have experience with what students really need to know and be able to do to succeed in their field in the real world.
