Purpose

Technical Skill Attainment under theCarl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006Daniel Smith, Center for Postsecondary SuccessMinnesota Department of Education


Purpose

Purpose:

The purpose of this Act is to develop more fully the academic and career and technical skills of secondary education students and postsecondary education students who elect to enroll in career and technical education programs

Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006, Section 2


Purpose

Two important changes in the Perkins Act of 2006:

  • A requirement for the

    establishment of

    Programs of Study

  • A new approach to assessing CTE skills

    • Academic skills

    • Technical skills

    • Workplace skills


Purpose

Elements in a Minnesota Program of Study:

  • Career Fields

  • Career Clusters

  • Career Pathways

  • Foundation Knowledge and Skills

Purpose

For Minnesota, a Program of Study is defined as:

  • A nonduplicative sequence of academic and technical courses,

  • Beginning no later than grade 11 and extending for at least two years beyond high school,

  • Culminating in a degree, diploma or certificate.


Purpose

Program of Study

Technical Skill Assessment


Purpose

The Act requires states to use assessments that are valid and reliable and aligned to industry-recognized standards where available and appropriate.

Validity generally refers to the degree to which a test or other measuring device is truly measuring what it intends to measure.

Reliability refers to the consistency of results for a test or measuring device.


Purpose

Alignment to industry-recognized standards is often addressed by using examinations tied to industry or trade certifications, but may also be addressed through alignment with state or national industry or trade standards (such as those of the Minnesota Board of Peace Officer Standards & Training).


Purpose

In thirty areas plus foundation knowledge and skills, core skills have been identified and assessment blueprints prepared. An inventory of potential technical skill assessments has been assembled.


Purpose

And while it is the expectation that performance on CTE concentrators will be reported to the US Department of Education for the purpose of accountability,

Minnesota’s approach neither expects that allconcentrators are assessed

nor that onlyconcentrators are assessed.


Purpose

In each approved program of study of the consortium where the state has identified technical skill assessments, the consortium must select at least one secondary site and at least one postsecondary program and assess all CTE students at an appropriate place and time.
