Automotive Technology

Test: Automotive Service Excellence

  • 2020: No test results to report (C. Lodenstein, Nov. 2021)
  • 2019: C. Lodenstein (Sept. 24, 2019): “We did not conduct Student ASE testing this year.  The pricing structure for that system increased, and the ASE organization made some other changes that made it more difficult for us to participate.  We are examining other possible assessment tools this year.”
