CTE Performance-Based Assessment Challenge
Hawaii's unique CTE Performance-Based Assessments (PBA) evaluate students' ability to apply the academic and technical skills and knowledge they have learned in their CTE Programs of Study. The PBA includes three components:
- research paper,
- written online assessment, and
- a challenge from a local or national business or organization asking students to develop a solution, strategy, and/or product to solve a problem facing the business or organization.
This year's challenge was hosted at the Sheraton Waikiki in early April. Students who achieved the highest proficiency ratings earned 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each pathway.
Here is a list of winners.
This year marked the first time the CTE program offered a video challenge to answer the question, "What does CTE mean to you?" The winner from Molokai High School can be viewed below. Congratulations!
