APTITUDE TESTING

Students will be assessed in several ways. Both a Pre-Test and Post-Test will be given as well as weekly quizzes. A standardized grading rubric will be used to assess these scores.

MENTORS

BUSINESS

Tech businesses in the community like Pluralsight, Xactware, Jive and more, are partnered up with CTS campuses and have a professional mentor over that campus. Duties include one weekly visit to the campus, being a resource for students to better understand the job market, giving examples of real world coding problems and solutions and providing answers to questions and problems students are running into.

INTERN

University students from the University of Utah, SLCC, WSU and more will apply for a paid internship to mentor a CTS campus on a daily basis. Students will benefit from a consistent individual who knows the curriculum and can help students work through daily problems. Duties include daily attendance, a weekly written report on class progress, individual student mentoring, and any other requirements for university credit.

PEER

Peer mentors are assigned to a campus, and are selected from students who graduated CTS in the previous year. They must apply for the position, and show a basic level of proficiency. These students will be there to help pace students, answer questions within their ability, and give insight on how the program works. Peer mentors will also have access to Pluralsights to continue their studies.
