Business and Information Technology (BIT) Education
Business & Information Technology (BIT) Education prepares students for careers related to business, technology, finance, management, and much more. BIT content focuses on topics that affect every member of society, including preparing individuals to own or operate their own business, and how to be successful members of our American Enterprise system. BIT educators develop and grow a comprehensive business program supported by former students, business employees/employers, fellow educators, parents and those who recognize that business education can improve the quality of life for the individual and well-being of the community.

Evaluation of a program provides a basis for identifying strengths and challenges for the program and overall curriculum. Program evaluation is not done for accountability purposes; it is intended as a management and planning tool. Use the Quality Program Standards Self-Evaluation to self-assess your programs strengths and challenges. ACTE has created an evidence-based framework defining high-quality CTE across 12 elements: The ACTE Quality CTE Program of Study Framework (2018 version) and a companion self-evaluation instrument, available in print and online
