Abstract

To support states in improving the quality of their Perkins accountability data, in late 2005 the Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE), U.S. Department of Education, invited State Directors of Career-Technical Education to submit requests for individualized technical assistance. In response to a request by the Idaho Division of Professional Technical Education, MPR researchers provided targeted technical assistance to help the assess the quality of state data on nontraditional participation and completion, and in identifying strategies for using state data to promote opportunities in nontraditional careers. This report summarizes project findings and provides recommendations to assist the state in improving the accuracy and use of secondary and postsecondary professional technical education data
