“Students have something tangible to take with them, no matter when they leave me or how they come in.”
– Layla Schackner, Teacher at Sacramento Academic and Vocational Academy
On average, more than 1.2 million students drop out of high school each year. “Classes aren’t interesting” and “school isn’t relevant” are often cited as reasons. In fact, 66% of high school students say they’re “not engaged” or are “actively disengaged” in their educations.
With industry-recognized certifications, you give students tangible proof that what they’re learning in the classroom matters. Precision Exams by YouScience certifications help students validate their skills and knowledge in CTE and other elective courses as well as showcase their soft skills with exams like 21st Century Skills and Personal Financial Literacy. We help you, help students as they work to connect what they learn in the classroom with careers – and empower them to be proud of where they are right now and where they’re headed.

DATA AND PROGRAM IMPROVEMENT
Using data to adjust program curriculum.
In just two years, Tami, a foods and nutrition instructor in Utah, increased the number of students earning certifications by 56%! How did she do it? “If I want my students to be work-ready, they have to understand the standards. In order to be a master teacher, my job is to follow and teach the standards so that my students will succeed on their Precision Exams.”
Within the Precision Exams by YouScience platform, educators have access to valuable student assessment and program improvement data (which also helps meet the Perkins V standards for program improvement). By reviewing her Proctor Standard Report, Tami identified the areas where students were struggling. Using the data, she joined a standards-based curriculum writing team and reorganized the order of her lessons to better help her students remember the content.
