The Employability Competency System is a leading employment-focused math series developed by CASAS. Use the progress tests (pre- and post) in this essential math series to monitor the progress of students in programs with a vocational or career focus. This competency-based series can help you identify the numeracy and mathematics skills that your students need as you prepare them to succeed in the workplace.

ECS forms were approved for NRS reporting through June 2014. ECS forms remain a valid measurement instrument and can be used within agencies. However, if agencies need to report data externally for WIOA funding purposes, they should use forms currently approved for NRS reporting.
