Site Visit Update: Rigorous Tests of Student Outcomes in CTE POS

Jun 2010

A Podcast with Marisa Castellano and Kirsten Sundell

Marisa Castellano (pictured) and Kirsten Sundell, co-principal investigators of the Rigorous Tests of Student Outcomes in CTE Programs of Study (POS) project, recently completed a round of site visits in for their study, most recently in District 1, one of the randomized controlled trial sites in their three-state/district study. This district employs a lottery to place students in its choice programs. District 1 study students attend three choice schools that structure their POS in different ways. The PIs visited all three schools plus several control schools out of a much larger control pool. They also conducted  interviews with faculty and administrators at the well-regarded community college that serves this large district.

Drs. Castellano and Sundell talked to Lacey Reeves at ACTE about what they saw and found on this site visit.
