CanDo: Online Student Skills Tracking System

  •  (developed by Arlington Public Schools CTE students!)

    The Virginia Department of Education has long required tracking and maintenance of student competency records for all CTE courses. For many years, through the CTE Resource Center, the state has offered Word and Excel templates for this purpose. Now, Virginia educators have another choice: the CanDo Competency-Tracking System.

    CanDo is a web-based application developed for teachers by Arlington County—in association with SchoolTool. Using Virginia’s state-approved task/competency lists, educators can track students’ progress electronically. Administrators have access to real-time scores and reports that satisfy state and federal requirements.

    CanDo is built on open source software and can be set up and implemented in any school division, regardless of size. At the direction of the Virginia Department of Education, the CTE Resource Center is available to provide Virginia public school divisions the necessary technical support and training for implementing the CanDo system.
