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 Maine Department of Education (MDE), MPR researchers provided targeted technical assistance to support the state in collecting data on student transitions from secondary to postsecondary education and the military (3S1), and for selected subpopulations of students that are difficult to identify and track. This report summarizes MPR researchers' review of the literature and state reporting approaches, and provides recommendations to assist the MDE in improving the validity and reliability of secondary and postsecondary CTE data
