More and more researchers are investigating CTE implementation and outcomes, and they need the input of CTE professionals and students. Please see the following research projects for opportunities to contribute!

myOptions Encourage-ACTE Student Questionnaires

ACTE has partnered, for a fourteenth year, with myOptions® Encourage™ to gather data that helps ACTE learn more about student and educator experiences with and attitudes toward CTE. 

Packages will be delivered throughout fall 2022 and we encourage you to take a few minutes of class time to complete these forms. Participating students will gain access to a free online planning profile and be matched with postsecondary education options as well as educational and career service providers offering products and services such as college admissions services, financial aid, career information, and co-curricular and recognition programs.  

Educators will receive a personalized report that shows how your school’s results compare to other participating schools nationwide. 

Participation in this program is free and voluntary. If you do not receive a package or would prefer to participate electronically, please email with the subject “ACTE Survey Package Request” and myOptions Encourage will provide you with a link to the online survey or send you a package of paper forms, whichever you prefer.
