2 General Assessment Information Blueprint Contents General Assessment Information Written Assessment Information Specific Competencies Covered in the Test Sample Written Items Performance Assessment Information Sample Performance Job Test Type: The Medical Assisting industry-based credential is included in NOCTI s Job Ready assessment battery. Job Ready assessments measure technical skills at the occupational level and include items which gauge factual and theoretical knowledge. Job Ready assessments typically offer both a written and performance component and can be used at the secondary and post-secondary levels. Job Ready assessments can be delivered in an online or paper/pencil format. Revision Team: The assessment content is based on input from secondary, post-secondary, and business/industry representatives from the states of Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, and Pennsylvania. CIP Code Allied Health and Medical Assisting Services, Other Career Cluster 8- Health Science Medical Assistants The American Medical Certification Association (AMCA) established as a division of the American School of Business, offers 14 certification exams for the allied healthcare field. AMCA supports NOCTI's Medical Assisting assessment which is closely aligned to AMCA's Clinical Medical Assistant Certification (CMAC). This assessment is an excellent training instrument, in both content and test-mode preparation. Students passing both the NOCTI assessment and AMCA's national certification exam are demonstrating superior knowledge in their field and are outstanding candidates for entry-level positions in the allied healthcare field. The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE), the leading professional organization for career and technical educators, commends all students who participate in career and technical education programs and choose to validate their educational attainment through rigorous technical assessments. In taking this assessment you demonstrate to your school, your parents and guardians, your future employers and yourself that you understand the concepts and knowledge needed to succeed in the workplace.
