Caitlin Brooks, South View CTE Student, Receives First Credit by Demonstrated Mastery

Ms. Williams, Teacher of Record and Student Advisor, Mr. Brooks Caitlin’s father, Ms. Johson Assistant Principal and Mrs. Scott CTE Dept. Chair

Congratulations to Caitlin Brooks for being the first student to achieve Credit by Demonstrated Mastery within Career and Technical Education for Cumberland County Schools.

The Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) Process allows high school students to demonstrate mastery of a course’s content, getting credit and a “CDM” indicator on the students’ transcript by taking an assessment and completing an artifact.

Caitlin’s first step was taking the Phase I of the CDM, which is a Diagnostic Assessment, consisting of 100 multi-choice CTE Post-Assessment Questions. To qualify for Phase II Artifact Development; she had to achieve a passing score of 90 or higher on the CTE Post-Assessment for BM10 MS Word and PowerPoint 2016.

The CTE Post-Assessment is administered using the North Carolina Department of Public Education SchoolNet Online Testing Platform and was proctored by Mrs. Helen Scott, South View High School CTE Facilitator.

In Phase II Artifact Development, she was required to take two Certification Examinations for MS Word and PowerPoint 2016. The Certification Examination requires the CDM Candidate to take two timed 50-minute exams and to achieve a passing score at least 70% or higher within the specified time limit.

The Certification Examinations proctored by Ms. Priscilla Williams, the Teacher of Record and served as her Student Advisor during the two phases of Caitlin’s CDM Process.

Due to the passing of the Certifications, she has also earned the Microsoft Office Certification Specialist (MOS) 2016 for MS Word and PowerPoint 2016. Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) 2016 provides industry-leading assessments of skills and knowledge through the new project-based testing, giving Caitlin a real-world exercise to appraise her understanding of Microsoft Office.

This guarantees that she has demonstrated the ability to command the full features and functionality of Microsoft Office, preparing her for future academic or workforce opportunities.

Again, Congratulations goes to Caitlin Brooks for Credit by Demonstrated Mastery and Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) 2016.
