The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education, (OCTAE) offers guidance and resources to promote the evolution of career and technical education (CTE) policy and practice and to expand student access to quality programs. To support OCTAE in establishing a research and evaluation agenda to guide its future investments, the National Center for Innovation in Career and Technical Education (NCICTE) convened federal officials, nationally recognized experts, and representatives of CTE stakeholder groups for a meeting on May 28, 2015, in Washington, D.C. This report documents and synthesizes the topics discussed, research questions suggested, and priorities for research and evaluation that emerged from the meeting.

This report provides a conceptual base for work-based learning (WBL), a strategy that helps students apply academic and technical skills and develop employability skills. WBL has been identified as an important issue for state and local program reform and implementation, but there is a need to better understand WBL as part of secondary CTE programs.
Date: Jan 2013
This report presents the results of the NRCCTE's five-year collaboration with SREB to develop an induction model for new CTE teachers pursuing an alternative route to certification that increases their competence, self-efficacy, and retention.
A Typology for Understanding the Career and Technical Education Credit-Taking Experience of High School Students
Date: Oct 2012
This report describes a framework for categorizing high school students who participate in CTE. The authors tested the validity of the framework by comparing it to a dichotomous approach to defining students: vocational versus academic. The analysis used data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002, collected by the National Center for Education Statistics.
