Long the standard for assessing performance in shop-based training environments, the practice of tracking student achievement against lists of skills continues to grow to keep pace with demands of the ever-changing workplace. From the traditional shop, to the academic classroom, the worksite, and high-tech labs, skills-based assessment is more important than ever. 

Fortunately, technologies for managing lists of skills, and tracking and reporting on student achievement have also evolved. Today’s administrators and instructors have retired their ineffective paper-based systems. They’ve moved beyond cumbersome bar code driven applications and tools that require manually transferring data from one device to another – and have embraced the simplicity and reliability of the truly mobile web-based solution found in SkillsPlus.
