Are you hoping to measure competency or productivity?

If it is competency that you hope to assess, allow your tech to cut blocks
of a variety of specimen types for 1 hour *without* distractions. If they
cut 30 or more blocks and produce good quality sections, then they are
meeting your standard.

If it is productivity that you want to assess, then you may want to look at
an average of several daily totals per tech. If you need to establish what
the desired minimal productivity benchmark is for your lab, do this for
several or all techs and come up with a reasonable  (and achievable)
benchmark for all to strive for as their minimum.
