  • Welcome to Moving from Programs of Study to Rigorous Programs of Study in Oklahoma
  • Programs of Study is a part of school improvement. It is a part of the work done by SREB, mentioned in Pathways to Prosperity and is the new vision for CTE of the National State Directors. It is currently a requirement in Carl Perkins. It is the right thing to do for students regardless of what happens to Perkins funding.

  • TLE was developed in Tulsa because evaluations had always been subjective and irrelevant. Our model is research based and externally validated. Teachers say it measures what matters. Over 500 school districts including every tech center in the state except one have chosen the Tulsa model for their evaluation system.3 of our staff members have been trained to do observations and evaluations. Plan is for us to sit in on observations and evaluations with the principal or assistant principal to assist with content, etc. that is specific to a CareerTech program. Will also submit things that we see in the classroom and competency test scores to principals to be included in observations and evaluations.

    61. 61. BackgroundOSUIT established college credit articulation agreements with many of Oklahoma’s CareerTech centers in the 1980sSince then, these agreements have grown and developed into the current Cooperative Alliance agreementsOSUIT currently has Cooperative Alliance agreements with over 50 technology center campuses
    62. 62. BackgroundApproximately 10-15% of OSUIT students enter college with previous Cooperative Alliance creditMany foundation courses for OSUIT’s degree programs are offered at Oklahoma’s CareerTech centers through Cooperative Alliance agreements
    63. 63. BackgroundStudents who enter AAS degree programs at OSUIT with previous Cooperative Alliance credit are enrolled in 2nd or 3rd semester courses that build upon these foundation coursesStudent success is dependent upon a thorough understanding of the program’s foundation courses
    64. 64. PurposeThe purpose of this study is to evaluate current cooperative alliance agreements and to determine if students are prepared to enter rigorous degree programs at OSUIT.
    65. 65. MethodologyWe will follow the progress of student cohorts who entered the following OSUIT AAS degree programs in Fall 2008 and Fall 2009 – Culinary Arts – Engineering Technologies – Electrical/Electronics Specialization – Engineering Technologies – Engineering Graphics & Design/Drafting Specialization – Engineering Technologies – Manufacturing Technology Specialization – Information Technologies
    66. 66. MethodologyStudents sampled will include former Cooperative Alliance (CAP) students as well as students who entered OSUIT with no CAP creditFor the purpose of this study, the control group will be those students who received credit for their technical prerequisites at OSUIT
    67. 67. MethodologyStudent performance will be tracked from initial enrollment in OSUIT program through graduation (or exit date if student does not complete degree)Data will be analyzed to determine if there is a significant relationship between student performance in OSUIT technical coursework and previous CAP credit in the program area
    68. 68. Data – Student Major Methodology – CareerTech Center Attended (if applicable) – Remediation Required (Reading, English, Math, or Technical) – Total Number of CAP Credit Hours – CAP GPA – Total Number of Non-CAP Technical Hours – Non-CAP Technical GPA – Final Cumulative Graduate/Retention GPA – Persistence to Graduation
    69. 69. SignificanceIf research shows that former Cooperative Alliance students perform at an equivalent or higher level in OSUIT’s technical courses when compared to those students who take their prerequisites at OSUIT, it will justify maintaining and/or expanding agreements in these program areas.
    70. 70. SignificanceHowever, if research shows that former Cooperative Alliance students do not perform at an equivalent level in OSUIT’s technical courses when compared to those students who take their prerequisites at OSUIT, it will serve as an indicator that these agreements may need to be revised.

    81. 81. ZAP Zebra Advisement ProgramPurpose – Enhance students’ awareness of educational and career opportunities and to assist students in making meaningful and informed choices regarding their preparation for the future. This will be accomplished through consistent individualized guidance and joint student/parent/teacher comprehensive planning.Claremore’s advisement program is the oldest in the state.
    82. 82. ZAP Zebra Advisement ProgramEach student is assigned a ZAP advisor in the ninth grade and continues working with them until they graduate.Students meet with their ZAP advisors at least once a month to receive information about Clubs and Activities, resumes, Career Exploration, Career Tech and Post secondary information, grade reports, test results, etc... This culminates each year with a 20 minute enrollment appointment for all students and their parents in early April.Over the last 14 years we have averaged a 95% participation rate of parents/guardians at ZAP enrollment time. It has become a tradition.

    86. 86. ZAP Advisor Duties• ZAP Advisors will attend all training that is required.• ZAP Advisors will prepare for each ZAP session so that students can receive full benefit of the session.• ZAP Advisors will build a relationship with the 15-20 students with which they have been entrusted.• ZAP Advisors will make every effort to attend the days that we hold monthly ZAP meetings in which important information is given to our students. (Usually on Wednesday)• ZAP advisors will recognize the importance of the 3 meetings in January, February, and March leading up to the ZAP enrollment sessions.
    87. 87. ZAP Advisor Duties• The ZAP enrollment sessions are typically on a Thursday evening and a Friday morning in late March or early April. THESE ARE MANDATORY.• ZAP advisors will be responsible for the following duties: • Float Duty during homecoming week - All advisors will sign up with their corresponding grade. • Winter Ball – Sophomore advisors will sign up for duty. • Prom – Junior advisors will sign up for duty. • Graduation – Senior advisors will sign up for duty.• Advisors may trade duties, but they need to inform Robin Davis and Todd Steidley.• ZAP Advisors will contact the counselors as soon as they know they will be missing a ZAP meeting so a substitute may be found.

Teaching and Learning StrategiesTeach-the-Teacher Workshops – Several NIH and NSF grants have enabled TCC Biotech Faculty to do “teach-the-teacher” workshops. – Develop and implement MORE internships and practicums in technical fields of study. Research cited on the next slide shows proven positive student outcomes.
    139. 139. Credit Transfer AgreementsEx.: Trade Adjustment Assistance and Community College and Career Training grant through DOL – Targets Manufacturing, Aviation, and/or Transportation & Logistics industries – Stackable and latticed credentials – Multiple entry/exit points
    140. 140. College and Career Readiness StandardsTCC Individual TAACCCT Award – MUCH best-practices research (ATD, I-BEST, “Breaking Through”, Complete College America, Network Remedial Reform Resources, InsideTrack) – Combination = Increased student retention, Decreased time to completion, Increased job placement rates
    141. 141. Professional DevelopmentEx. TAACCCT: Council for Adult Experiential Learning (CAEL) – Grant provides professional development opportunities for faculty to learn how to prepare and properly execute Prior Learning Assessment portfolios on students. – Due to this effort, also looking into expanding the institution’s “course catalog/warehouse” so PLA credits may be recognized.“Research is Teaching” – TCC created an undergraduate research strategic plan for the College.
    142. 142. Outcomes MeasurementTime will be the most common tool of measurement used: – Were career pathways built? – Did students who earned PLA credits graduate “on time” or early compared to their peers? – Are students gainfully employed upon graduation? – Grants (especially federal grants) capture much of this kind of student outcome data.
