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 Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Career and Technical Education, MPR researchers met with state Perkins administrators to critique current state measurement approaches, to solicit recommendations to improve collaboration among team members, and to identify pressing local technical assistance needs. This report summarizes project findings and provides recommendations to assist the state in improving the efficiency and operation of its state Perkins accountability system.
