In order to receive CTEA funding, you must meet state and local adjusted levels of performance established under § 113. Describe the selection process that resulted in the TOP Codes identified for funding. Describe the data analysis, including labor market information and core indicator data, and resources that resulted in the proposed TOP Codes [§ 134(b)(2)]
CTEA Core Indicators:
Tech Skill Attainment Core Indicator 1 measures skill achievement (course completion with a grade of A, B, C, or credit), and uses enrollments in Apprenticeship, Advanced Occupational or Clearly Occupational courses (coded with SAM Priority codes A-C). Students may be enrolled in more than one program area and may be included in more than one population grouping.
Credential, Certificate or Degree Core Indicator 2 measures for vocational student "Leavers and Completers." Receipt of a certificate or degree or transfer-prepared (with or without a degree) is considered a completion.
Student Retention or Transfer - Higher Education Core Indicator 3 measures the percentage of students in the cohort who have successfully completed (A, B, C, CR) a minimum of 12 units of related coursework in a CTE program and who persisted in education at the community college level or transfer-prepared students are removed from calculations for this measure.
Student Placement - Employment Core Indicator 4 measures the percentage of vocational student "Leavers and Completers" who did not transfer to a 2 or 4-year institution and were enrolled (during one of the four quarters following the cohort year) in an apprenticeship program, UI-covered employment, federal government, or the military. Transfer-prepared students are removed from calculations for this measure.
Non-Traditional - Participation and Completion Core Indicator 5a measures participation of vocational student "Leavers and Completers" in training leading to employment where either gender is less than 25% of those employed using 1990 Census data.
Core Indicator 5b measures the percentage of vocational student leavers and completers in program leading to employment in non-traditional fields who are of the underrepresented gender (i.e., female students completing programs leading to male dominated occupations and male students completing programs leading to female dominated occupations. Completion is defined as: ) receiving a degree, certificate or equivalent; 2) completing a transfer program (transfer prepared); 3) transferring to a two or four-year institution; or 4) enlisting in the military.
