Nevada Program Quality Criteria Site-Based CTE Program Assessment Instrument
Nevada Department of Education
The Program Quality Criteria include ten components designed to help validate a comprehensive career and technical education (CTE) program. Upon a self review or third party review, any program may use this instrument to determine how the program has made progress in its development. The review instrument is not designed as an evaluation tool, whereby a program with low rating scores may be determined as "inadequate." Rather, the instrument and review process are designed to help focus program improvement. However, it would be expected that any program that has not, for example, aligned the local curriculum with state skill standards would do so as soon as reasonably possible. The Program Review Instrument is to be used for program-improvement purposes. Each of the ten quality criterion are defined by finer, more measurable criteria to determine their status: (1) Exemplary; (2) Adequate; (3) Improving; (4) Inadequate; and (5) Non-Existent. At the end of the document, the results of the review in the instrument are repeated in tables that are more condensed; this way, a quick snap shot of how a program was rated in curriculum development, for example, could easily by noted.
