Meeting the Challenge: Cal-PASS

California Partnership for Achieving Student Success

a matter of misalignment
A Matter of Misalignment
  • According to a recent report issued by the Stanford University Bridge Project:
  • “…the coursework between high school and college is not connected; students graduate from high school under one set of standards and, three months later, are required to meet a whole new set of standards in college.”

cal pass research
Cal-PASS Research
  • Action Research Paradigm
    • Faculty, administrators, and local researchers are active participants
    • Iterative process to refine analysis
  • Common questions become standard reports or web based queries produced by Cal-PASS staff
  • Locally unique questions handled by local researchers with assistance from Cal-PASS staff

4. The state must describe how it will ensure that each funded tech-prep program:

a) Is carried out under an articulation agreement between the participants in the consortium, as defined in section 3(4) of the Act:

…. Each LEA participating in a consortium must certify that its program has been aligned with the appropriate state CTE standards and provide evidence of participation in state-approved data sharing such as Cal-PASS.

  • Each community college or high school district within your consortium must be fully signed up with Cal-PASS….In other words in order for secondary or postsecondary to be a member of your consortium they must be a data submitting member of CalPASS.
  • If a consortium has developed an alternative data collection system unconnected to CalPASS that meets all of the Performance and Accountability measures of Title II Section 203(e) the Project Director should contact their Project Monitor to get advanced permission (before the May 5th application due date) for exemption from using CalPASS.
