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 South Dakota Department of Education, Office of Career and Technical Education, MPR researchers provided technical assistance to help the state identify strategies for assessing technical skill attainment of secondary and postsecondary CTE concentrators. This report summarizes project findings and details strategies for developing technical skill assessments at the secondary and postsecondary levels that align with OVAE guidance
