Abstract

To support states in improving the quality of their Perkins accountability data, the Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE), US Department of Education, invited State Directors of Career-Technical Education to submit requests for individualized technical assistance. In response to a request by the Connecticut Department of Education (CTDOE), MPR researchers provided targeted technical assistance to help the state improve the validity of its measure of secondary academic achievement. This report summarizes state approaches to assessing academic achievement and recommends alternate approaches that the CTDOE may wish to consider to improve its existing Perkins measure
