2019/2020 Student Competency Records

Traditional letter or numerical grades do not provide adequate documentation of student achievement in competency-based education; therefore, the Virginia Standards for CBE require a recording system to provide information about competencies achieved to employer, student-employee, and teacher. The Student Competency Records below provide a means for keeping track of student progress. Ratings are assigned by the teacher for classroom competency achievement and by the teacher-coordinator in conjunction with the training sponsor when competence is evaluated on the job.

Tasks/competencies designated "Required" are considered essential statewide and are required of all students. In some courses, all tasks/competencies have been identified as required. Tasks/competencies marked "Optional" are considered optional; they and/or additional tasks/competencies may be taught at the discretion of the school division. Tasks/competencies marked with an asterisk (*) are considered sensitive, and teachers should obtain approval by the school division before teaching them. Student competency records should be kept as long as the student is enrolled in the school and for five years after the student graduates/leaves the school.

Note: Students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or an Individualized Student Alternative Education Plan (ISAEP) will be rated, using the following scale, only on the competencies identified in their IEP or ISAEP.

Students will be expected to achieve a satisfactory rating (one of the three highest marks) on the Student Competency Record (SCR) rating scale on at least 80% of the required (essential) competencies in a CTE course.

    Rating Scale
  1. Can teach others
  2. Can perform without supervision
  3. Can perform with limited supervision
  4. Can perform with supervision
  5. Cannot perform
