Scott Rogers, assistant director at York County School of Technology, said that results of the 2012-2013 national occupational competency exams show that almost 89 percent of seniors tested scored either "competent" or "advanced."
That percentage exceeds the national standard of 72 percent and the statewide average of 82 percent for career and technical education high schools.
Rogers presented the data at Thursday's Joint Operating Committee meeting.
NOCTI tests, as they are commonly called, are given annually to senior students. The tests measure students' proficiency in various technical disciplines and are needed for professional certification.
