The SCANS system provides encoding of objective and subjective information.  That why the term Ďassessmentí has come into vogue.  Test scores are objective.  Assessments are subjective - they are opinions.   When you look at the integration of the SCANS Competencies into curriculum areas, it becomes clear why the system of measuring achievement had to become subjective rather than objective.

"We recommend that SCANS know-how be taught from kindergarten through grade 12 and beyond.  Even in the early grades, the foundation skills and workplace competencies can be taught, oriented around school- and home-based tasks."  p. 34
