Auditing a State Career and Technical Education Program for Quality

Career Technical Education (CTE) programs must be examined regularly 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.
