The National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) has a long history, well over four decades, of providing comprehensive occupational skill assessments to measure student achievement. One of the organization's core beliefs is that comprehensive career and technical education (CTE) student assessment is one of the most effective tools for increasing student achievement and motivation through educators' use of data for instructional purposes. This study investigated how secondary CTE educators, both teachers and administrators, use technical assessment data to improve program curriculum and to identify individual/group instruction needs. Of particular interest in developing the survey was to ask how they have learned to make use of the data; what specific types of professional development were provided, if any; their perception of the effectiveness of this training; and what types of professional development they would consider most effective for the future. Findings and significance of this study are discussed. (Contains 2 figures.)
