Overview: Program Size, Scope, and Quality
Size, Scope, and Quality is the measure of the overall ability of a CTE Program of Study to address all of the standards of its identified skill set and to intentionally prepare the student for the next step on a complete and robust career pathway, whatever that step may be. The Size, Scope, and Quality definition creates the foundation for a CTE Program of Study.
The evidence for Program Size, Scope, and Quality—ranging from objective measures of available credits to documentation of certain aspects of the High Quality CTE Program of Study Rubric or community college accreditation—is used jointly by secondary and postsecondary institutions to demonstrate that a newly proposed CTE Program of Study has the fundamental pieces in place.
This evidence is used in conjunction with the completed High Quality CTE Program of Study Rubric and the CTE Needs Assessment to help create a plan for continuous improvement and a focus for allocation of resources.
