California Career Development Event Tabulations Programs

Events using the California CDE Tabulations Program may choose a variety of forms for a given contest.  See the CATA Curicular Code for which forms may apply and contact the contest organizers to see which forms they are using.  Coaches are advised to print sample forms and practice using them before the contest. 

Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) cards are read by a scanner (similar to a Scantron test).  These are replacing the older barcode cards at some contests and many state finals.  Print sample score cards just like those used at major contests.  Forms can be printed on plain paper or index stock and used by your judging team.  Forms are in PDF format (Adobe Acrobat Reader required.)
