NTC tablet app evaluates student learning, skills


Northcentral Technical College and four area high schools are using computer technology to assess student learning. Six federal grants were awarded in different fields, and NTC is focusing on the field of manufacturing. The application works on an I-Pad, and helps teachers in high school evaluate student knowledge and monitor their progress with understanding and applying new skills. Bob Marlowe from NTC says the application is working and helps determine what skills people excel at and what skills are needed more training. Marlowe says they have worked with businesses and educators to develop a core list of twelve skills people need in the manufacturing workplace, and this tool helps track students as they identify and improve upon each skill.
