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).
