The CTE Research Network seeks to expand the evidence base on the causal impact of CTE programs on student outcomes. But what is “causal impact” and what do CTE educators need to know related to the topic? This webinar provides a discussion with leading researchers about the value of causal impact and other research methodologies.

Addressing the need for systematic measures to fully capture the impact of CTE, this CTE Research Network paper catalogs the measures of CTE exposure that prior studies have used, documents measures and outcomes in more recent causal studies, and offers a framework for how to measure CTE exposure and outcomes in the future.
The CTE Research Network developed this catalog to help researchers identify datasets that can be used for career and technical education research.
Examining High School Career and Technical Education Programs and the Postsecondary Outcomes of CTE Students in the Round Rock Independent School District
This report from Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Southwest describes CTE participation and postsecondary outcomes for the Round Rock Independent School District. In addition to this longitudinal study, the report examines the alignment of high school CTE programs in Central Texas with the region’s high-wage, in-demand career pathways.
This What Works Clearinghouse report summarizes Washington State's Integrated Basic Education Skills and Training (I-BEST) program and its outcomes for community college students. The I-BEST program provides occupational training for students.
Career and Technical Education in Oregon: Exploring Who Participates in High School and the Outcomes They Achieve
This study examines secondary CTE school offerings, student participation, and outcomes in Oregon under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) and can provide baseline information to guide the state's transition to Perkins V.
This brief highlights the findings from a JFF study examining the monetary benefits and costs of the Industrial Manufacturing Technician (IMT) Registered Apprenticeship program.
Evaluating CTE programs requires identifying a control group of students, or counterfactual. This paper from the CTE Research Network presents a series of case studies assessing the counterfactual for a selection of experimental and quasi-experimental CTE program evaluations.
