All CTE Programs in the district are required to have students in the programs complete three different types of assessments (ADE Assessment, Industry Certification, & District Formative Assessments) at different times during the year and program. These assessments should be embedded into teachers planning each year as they are no optional. Each type of assessment has different criteria on who will take the assessment, when, and how the assessments will be scheduled and administered.
ADE End of Program CTE Assessments
The Arizona Department of Education creates assessments for all CTE programs, and requires districts to administer these assessments to all program completers annually.
