COMMUNITY & TECHNICAL COLLEGES

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

This page provides skill standards information to assist community and technical college (CTC) educators to understand what skill standards are, how to use them in instructional programs, and how to receive TSSB recognition for skill standards usage. A list of TSSB-recognized CTC programs that are teaching and assessing their students on the basis of standards is also provided, with examples of program recognition application materials.

WORKSHOPS

TSSB staff is available to deliver a skill standards usage workshop on site at any college. The workshop uses exercises and examples to explain how skill standards are developed and guides users through the suggested skill standards integration process presented in our User’s Guide below. Contact the TSSB office at (512) 936-8100 to arrange a workshop presentation.
