Subject: FW: CTE Survey

 CTE Deans,

 When we last met in March you requested that the researchers provide you with the following to support the process of revising the CTE survey:

    •          A list of data we can provide you annually (and therefore need not be collected on the CTE survey or through other methods)
    •          Our thoughts regarding data which should be collected or excluded on the CTE survey instrument

 Here are a few thoughts on these items from the researchers,

 Examples of data we can provide (see attached example of data provided by CSM research office):

    •          Unduplicated headcount of students participating in CTE courses
    •          Unduplicated headcount by gender, age, ethnicity, day or evening, educational goal, major.
    •          Success and retention in all CTE courses (annually and by term) aggregated and disaggregated by ethnicity and gender
    •          Grade distribution in CTE courses
    •          Course enrollments, FTEF, FTES, WSCH, Load
    •          Degrees and certificates awarded

 Examples of items we suggest be collected on the survey

    •          G#
    •          Name
    •          Data to determine eligibility of “economically disadvantaged students”
    •          Student satisfaction (How satisfied are they with various elements of the program)
    •          Challenges and obstacles (what are the barriers to student success)
    •          Student needs / program improvement (How could we improve the program)
