Reflections from the field: Stephen Dewitt, Deputy Director, Associate for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) Closing 3 Defining Competency-Based Pathways as College and Career Readiness for ALL Students CBP can help all students reach college and career readiness through the following strategies: Students advance upon demonstrated mastery Competencies include explicit, measurable, transferable learning

objectives that empower students Assessment is meaningful and a positive learning experience for students Students receive rapid, differentiated support based on their individual learning needs Learning outcomes emphasize competencies that include application and creation of knowledge The process of reaching learning outcomes encourages students to develop skills and dispositions important for success in college, careers, and citizenship Source: Adapted from Susan Patrick and Chris Sturgis, July 2011, Cracking the Code: Synchronizing Policy and Practice to Support Personalized Learning , iNACOL, http://www.inacol.org/research/docs/iNACOL_CrackingCode_full_report.pdf

4 Defining Career Technical Education Career Technical Education: Any education that prepares learners for the career of their choice, including the technical, academic and employability skills A high-quality CTE program of study is a sequence of courses/experiences across secondary and postsecondary that: Incorporates rigorous, state-identified college and career readiness standards

Is aligned with the needs of industries Progresses in specificity (beginning with all aspects of an industry or career cluster and leading to more occupationally-specific instruction); Incorporates multiple entry and exit points Culminates in the attainment of a recognized postsecondary credential Source: NASDCTEc/ACTE 5 Poll Question #1
