Auditing a State Career and Technical Education Program for Quality

Career Technical Education (CTE) programs must be examined regurarly to ensure that they are high-quality. To help state leaders audit CTE programs for quality, this guide from ExcelinEd outlines a three-phase audit process to address CTE program quality, alignment and overall effectiveness. The guide argues that an effective CTE program audit consists of the following phases:

1. Planning and Prep: Establishing the audit rationale, priorities and program quality indicators;

2. Implementation: Identifying and collecting data for program quality indicators; and

3. Analysis and Next Steps: Translating audit results into action.
