CTE’s Focus on Continuous Improvement through Data-Driven Improvement of Instruction
One important way CTE is focusing on education reform is through attention to data-driven instructional techniques for improving and focusing instruction on what matters most. In the 2011-2012 school year, the NRCCTE will offer CTEDDI (Career and Technical Educators using Data-Driven Improvement) to states as a technical assistance option. CTEDDI will provide educators from participating states with professional development to increase their knowledge and skills in the use and interpretation of assessment data for making instructional improvements. CTEDDI will be delivered by facilitators who will also serve as coaches as the educators apply their initial training at their school sites.
