Description

This external evaluation is intended to assess the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education’s (NRCCTE) effectiveness and performance on the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures. Panel studies are used to NRCCTE research relevance and product quality, and survey studies are used to NRCCTE’s usefulness of technical assistance and quality of professional development. The findings are reported to the Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education. In addition to the GPRA assessment, The Evaluation Center has been asked to conduct an outcome evaluation of the Technical Assistance Academy, one of the major NRCCTE projects.
