End of Course Assessments

Check out this feature on how CASE and NOCTI partner to advance agricultural education.

CASE EoCs will be delivered via NOCTI, a third-party assessment agency. CASE EoC content is developed and aligned to CASE courses by independent contractors.

Why should my program facilitate CASE End-of-Course Assessments (EoCs)?

  • The end-of-course (EoC) assessments were developed by CASE to align with CASE concepts and National AFNR Common Career Technical Core Standards. The assessments are available through NOCTI, serving as the CASE partner for third-party delivery.  EoC assessments serve as a measurement of student success that is nationwide, valid, and reliable, and comparable across the country. These end-of-course assessments meet Perkins V requirements.

  • CASE EoCs provide teachers, administrators, and other stakeholder groups with student performance data.

  • CASE encourages institutions to include CASE EoC benchmarks as performance measurements in articulation and dual credit agreements.

IEP Accessibility for CASE NOCTI Assessments

    CASE EoCs are a nationwide assessment for CASE students, aligned directly with CASE coursework.

    CASE EoCs may be facilitated as a pre-assessment and a post-assessment, or, post-assessment only.

    CASE EoCs are available for the following courses:

    End-of-Course Assessments are designed to be facilitated at the conclusion of each course. CASE courses spiral and scaffold, building upon previous knowledge and skills. The end-of-course assessment for the last course a student takes could be considered the end-of-program assessment based on your local and state guidelines. 


    A Site Coordinator must be assigned to order and administer EoCs

    A Site Coordinator must be designated to serve as the primary contact for NOCTI. This individual should be in an administrative and decision-making position, including being able to enter into agreements with NOCTI. 

    Examples include, but are not limited to:

    • Principal
    • Assistant Principal
    • CTE Coordinator
    • Counselor
    • Director
    • Dean
    • Testing Coordinator

    Examples of key Site Coordinator responsibilities include:

    • Assuring all involved in the NOCTI program are aware of and abide by NOCTI policy and guidelines.
    • Providing instructional staff with resources, information, test data, and access to the Teacher Resource Center (as applicable).
    • Selecting/approving proctors and evaluators according to NOCTI guidelines.
    • Coordinating ordering, test administration, and providing reports and certificates to stakeholders, as needed. 

    If your school district is an existing NOCTI client you will already have a site coordinator in place. The Site Coordinator will need to complete the NOCTI Security and Testing Agreement prior to ordering CASE EoCs.

    NOCTI requires the Site Coordinator to have an on-site presence at each school. Large districts may have one Site Coordinator overseeing multiple locations as long as each location has an on-site co-coordinator linked to their NOCTI account.

    CASE is an initiative of the National Council for Agricultural Education (The Council).
