Building on the work of the national Crosswalk Validation Project, NAPE has updated its designations of nontraditional Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) codes to reflect revisions made to the codes by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in 2010. State and local education agencies have used NAPE’s Nontraditional Crosswalk since 2007 to collect data for the Perkins IV nontraditional core indicators. Press Release
Still using 2006 employment data as the baseline to ensure consistent reporting during Perkins IV, NAPE identified the occupations that employ less than 25% of men and women. Then, using the revised SOC-CIP (Table 7) produced by the Crosswalk Validation Project, NAPE mapped those occupations to the 2010 SOCs and then the 2010 CIPs. Rather than creating a separate nontraditional crosswalk, NAPE worked with the NRCCTE to add a column to the revised CIP-Cluster crosswalk (Table 1) to show the nontraditional designations. This new nontraditional crosswalk (Table 3) supersedes all previous versions of NAPE’s nontraditional crosswalk.
