Professional Pathways for Teachers: 2018-2019 Appraisal Results for Career and Technical Education Instructors
Comparisons between CTE and non-CTE instructors and between CTE endorsements were examined in the context of PPfT and CTE’s overlapping goals of quality instruction and professional learning. CTE instructors had significantly higher summative scores than did non-CTE instructors. Almost twice as many CTE as non-CTE instructors earned a distinguished rating. Results supported key indicators of CTE high-quality instruction (i.e., prepared and effective program staff, engaging instruction, work-based learning opportunities, and standards-aligned and industry-based curriculum and instruction).

The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Student Survey, administered in Spring 2017, was designed to gather students’ feedback about their experiences taking the advanced CTE courses offered in their specific career pathway. Students who participated in the Austin Independent School District’s (AISD) CTE Student Survey highly rated the courses they had taken in their career pathway and the opportunities to gain hands-on experiences ready for their life, college, and career.
This report compares characteristics of students who had taken career and technical education (CTE) courses or a sequence of such courses, to those of students who had not. The role of CTE in postsecondary employment and enrollment is also examined.
The Career and Technology Education (CATE) program integrates occupational learning into a curriculum of academic coursework. During 2002-2003, 1,217 CATE classes were held, serving 12,343 students.
