Competitive Events Guidelines

Oklahoma BPA will be utilizing a Supplement Guide to the National Workplace Skills Assessment Program Guidelines booklet again.

The purpose of the Guidelines Supplement is to serve as an addendum to the National Guidelines and to provide as much information as possible to help prepare students for a successful experience at the State Leadership Conference (SLC).

The National Workplace Skills Assessment Program Guidelines, as well as the supplement, regulate all state Workplace Skills Assessment Program Events. Authors, administrators, proctors, and evaluators will strictly follow these guidelines. At the state level, if there are conflicts between the two guidelines the Oklahoma Guidelines Supplement will supersede the National Guidelines except in the case of national contest eligibility.

There have been some corrections to the 2012-2013 Competitive Events Supplement; the following table outlines the changes.
