The KY Tech Office of Career and Technical Education (OCTE) was designated to manage program assessment for secondary career and technical education (CTE) programs by a 2000 legislative initiative.  The stakeholders developed a process and a 21-standard document (later revised to 17 standards) by which to assess the CTE programs.  The document has been revised every two years to begin a new 2-year cycle of assessment team visits.  During the first cycle of team visits (2001-2005) assessment teams reviewed 86 schools with 375 programs.  During each 2-year cycle approximately 91 schools and 533 programs are visited.

The findings of the assessment teams are entered into a database and are (1) shared with the schools for their use in developing program and school continuous improvement plans; (2) the major support for SACS accreditation; (3) used for the development of the OCTE district continuous improvement plan and (4) used to provide professional development for teachers and administrators.

A detailed overview of the program assessment process and progress is available at Program Assessment Overview.  The web address below links teachers and principals to resources that will assist them in the program assessment process.
