This brief summarizes results of a recently published study that examined the effects of career and technical education (CTE) transition programs on student matriculation from secondary to postsecondary education. The study was divided into two components. One focused on secondary institutions' CTE transition programs and their effects on secondary student performance and college transition as well as student perceptions of the transition programs. The other component examined the postsecondary effects of the selected CTE programs on student transition and postsecondary outcomes, taking a retrospective look at students who matriculated from the specified high school CTE transition programs and comparing them to non-participants from the same sampled high schools. This analysis examined student persistence in college and whether the transition programs were related to remediation, credit attainment, number of terms attended, and certificate or degree attainment. Both components of the study examined the relationship between student outcomes and institutional engagement in CTE transition programs, a measure of institution-level commitment as evidenced by number of articulation agreements and faculty involvement in delivering CTE transition-related courses, on postsecondary education outcomes.
