Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v83 n8 p26-29 Nov-Dec 2008
Employers are looking to career and technical education (CTE) programs to supply a workforce possessing academic and employability skills to complement the technical component. In Kentucky, the state has instituted assessment standards to ensure that CTE programs are working to increase student achievement. The program assessment standards bring all the accountability requirements together in one package making it easier for teachers to satisfy their many stakeholders. The program assessment process is a work in progress for CTE teachers and administrators. The assessment process is a tool to measure progress and provides the analytical data needed to guide the district through continuous improvement. The Office of Career and Technical Education (OCTE) and Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) continue to improve the program assessment process and to use the data to increase student achievement through quality CTE programs.
