2015 High School Exit Survey: Comparison of Responses of Career and Technical Education Concentrators with Those of Their Peers
Many survey responses of CTE and non-CTE seniors were very similar, including their plans to enroll in postsecondary education. Some differences in responses may be explained by differences in economic status.
This report summarizes 2001-2002 program evaluation results of AISD's career and technology education program.
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.
This report summarizes the 2000-2001 program evaluation of the AISD Career and Technology Education Program.
