■Notes
These assessments were developed and aligned with the American Welding Society (AWS) completion
requirements for Level 1 — Entry Welder SENSE certification. The AWS' School of Excelling through
National Skill Standards Education (SENSE) is a comprehensive set of minimum Standards and
Guidelines for Welding Education programs. Schools can incorporate SENSE into their own curriculum
to attain Perkins funding and insure an education that is consistent with other SENSE schools across
the nation. The welding assessments offered through the CareerTech Testing Center of the Oklahoma
Department of Career and Technology Education can be used to meet the completion requirements for
SENSE certification.
The Welding assessments measure a student’s ability to apply knowledge and skills as an Entry Level
Welder. The CareerTech Testing Center has modularized our assessments to provide a complete
assessment for each required module to receive partial or full SENSE level certification for an Entry
Welder in one of the five areas of emphasis — Shield Metal Arc Welding, Gas Metal Arc Welding, FluxCored Arc Welding, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, or Cutting Process Operator. These assessments are
designed to prepare a student for the industry-recognized credentialing assessment.

CareerTech and Competency-Based Education:
A Winning Combination
Competency-based education uses learning outcomes that emphasize both the application and creation
of knowledge and the mastery of skills critical for success. In a competency-based education system,
students advance upon mastery of competencies, which are measureable, transferable outcomes that
empower students.
Career and technology education uses industry professionals and certification standards to identify
the knowledge and skills needed to master an occupation. This input provides the foundation for
development of curriculum, assessments and other instructional materials needed to prepare students
for wealth-generating occupations and produce comprehensively trained, highly skilled employees
demanded by the work force.
Tools for Success
CareerTech education relies on three basic instructional components to deliver competency-based
instruction: skills standards, curriculum materials, and competency assessments.
Skills standards provide the foundation for competency-based instruction and outline the
knowledge and skills that must be mastered in order to perform related jobs within an industry. Skills
standards are aligned with national skills standards and/or industry certification requirements; therefore,
a student trained to the skills standards is equally employable in local, state and national job markets.
Curriculum materials and textbooks contain information and activities that teach students
the knowledge and skills outlined in the skills standards. In addition to complementing classroom
instruction, curriculum resources include supplemental activities that enhance learning by providing
opportunities to apply knowledge and demonstrate skills.
Competency Assessments test the student over material outlined in the skills standards and
taught using the curriculum materials and textbooks. When used with classroom performance
evaluations, written competency assessments provide a means of measuring occupational readiness.
Each of these components satisfies a unique purpose in competency-based education and reinforces the
knowledge and skills students need to gain employment and succeed on the job.
Measuring Success
Evaluation is an important component of competency-based education. Pre-training assessments
measure the student’s existing knowledge prior to receiving instruction and ensure the student’s training
builds upon this knowledge base. Formative assessments administered throughout the training process
provide a means of continuously monitoring the student’s progress towards mastery.
Written competency assessments provide a means of evaluating the student’s mastery of knowledge
and skills. Coaching reports communicate competency assessment scores to students and provide
a breakdown of assessment results by standard area. The coaching report also shows how well
the student has mastered skills needed to perform major job functions and identifies areas of job
responsibility that may require additional instruction and/or training.

Welding Assessment Information
What are the Welding assessments?
The Welding assessments are end-of-program assessments for students in entry level welding programs.
The assessments provide an indication of student’s mastery of the knowledge and skills necessary for
success in welding careers.
How were the assessments developed?
The assessments were developed by the CareerTech Testing Center to align with the AWS Level
1— Entry Welding completion requirements outlined in AWS QC10 and EG 2.0. A committee of
industry representatives and educators validated the modules covered on the five assessments. Each
assessment’s content was developed and reviewed by a committee of subject matter experts, including a
representative from the AWS.
What do the assessments cover?
Specifically, each test incorporates various modules required for partial or full completion in the area of
emphasis. The areas of emphasis are as follows for each assessment:
Shielded Metal Arc Welder (82 questions)
Safety & Health of Welders

What are the benefits of using these assessments?
Students who score 70% or higher on any of the assessments receive a competency certificate which
can be displayed in the student’s portfolio.
If a student is enrolled at a SENSE participating organization and passes all performance measures,
these assessments can be used to meet the written test requirements for partial or full completion for
AWS SENSE. On the written exams, the student must achieve a score of 75% or higher on each of the
assessments taken and achieve an overall score of 90% or higher on "Demonstrate Safety Skills" on each
assessment taken.
A student who passes all five CTTC competency assessments may apply for full completion. A student
who passes any one of the four welding processes assessments (24301, 24302, 24303, 24304) plus 24305
Cutting Process Operator assessment may apply for partial completion.
When should the assessments be taken?
The CareerTech Testing Center recommends that students take this assessment as soon as possible
after receiving all standards-related instruction, rather than waiting until the end of the school year.
Are the assessments timed?
No. Although students may take as long as they need, most finish the assessment within one hour.
Can students use a calculator on the assessments?
Yes — calculators are permitted. Also, if needed, the test proctor will provide paper and a pencil to be
used during the test. These items will be collected from the student when the assessment is submitted
for scoring.
What accommodations can be made for students with
Individualized Education Plans (IEPs)?
Accommodations are allowed for students with an Individualized Education Plan. Examples of allowable
accommodations include:
■ Extended time — This assessment is not timed, therefore students may take as much time as needed
to finish. The assessment must be completed in one testing session.
■ Readers — A reader may be used to read the assessment to a student who has been identified as
needing this accommodation.
■ Enlarged text — Students needing this accommodation can activate this feature by clicking the
icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
5
What can students expect on Test Day?
The assessment is web-based and delivered exclusively online by a proctor in the school’s assessment
center. The proctor cannot be an instructor or anyone who was involved with the student during
instruction. Once the exam window opens, the entire assessment is visible. Students can skip questions
and return to them later. However, it is important to answer all questions before submitting the test for
scoring - unanswered questions will be counted wrong.
After the assessment is scored, the student will receive a coaching report that not only shows the
student’s score on the assessment, but also how the student performed in each standard area. Students
who pass the assessment will also be awarded a certificate recognizing their accomplishment.
Can students retake the test?
Students may retake the test unless their school or state testing policies prohibit retesting. Students
who can retest must wait at least three days between test attempts.

Test Taking Strategies
This section of the study guide contains valuable information for testing success and provides a
common-sense approach for preparing for and performing well on any test.
General Testing Advice
1. Get a good night’s rest the night before the test — eight hours of sleep is recommended.
2. Avoid junk food and “eat right” several days before the test.
3. Do not drink a lot or eat a large meal prior to testing.
4. Be confident in your knowledge and skills!
5. Relax and try to ignore distractions during the test.
6. Focus on the task at hand — taking the test and doing your best!
7. Listen carefully to the instructions provided by the exam proctor. If the instructions are not clear,
ask for clarification.
Testing Tips
1. Read the entire question before attempting to answer it.
2. Try to answer the question before reading the choices. Then, read the choices to determine if one
matches, or is similar to your answer.
3. Do not change your answer unless you misread the question or are certain that your first answer is
incorrect.
4. Answer questions you know first, so you can spend additional time on the more difficult questions.
5. Check to make sure you have answered every question before you submit the assessment for
scoring — unanswered questions are marked incorrect.
