The Next Steps Work Group Subgroup on POS Measurement, Accountability and Evaluation

The Next Steps Work Group Subgroup on POS Measurement, Accountability and Evaluation

Oct 2010

A Podcast about Accountability and Assessment

Between April and October 2010, a subgroup of the Next Steps Working Group was formed to discuss Program of Study (POS) measurement, accountability and evaluation.  The broad question the subgroup set out to answer was the following: How will a state know that its POS implementation strategy is working?

As a result of their conversations, the subgroup has drafted a report with four recommendations. The recommendations will be formally released in November,  but you can hear a preview here.

The subgroup, and this podcast, is led by Pradeep Kotamraju, Deputy Director of the National Research Center for CTE. Other participants include:

  • Randy Dean, Technical College System of Georgia
  • Rick Mangini, Ohio Department of Education
  • John Townsend, Tennessee Board of Regents

During the podcast, John Townsend raised the issue of two perspectives on CTE programs at the secondary level that differ among the states.
