WHAT’S THE PROBLEM

  • 19% of OUS undergraduates transfer from an Oregon Community College

  • Transfer is not as smooth as it should be


What s the problem

OREGON’S RESPONSE: SB 342

  • Develop an outcomes-based framework for articulation and transfer that is derived from a common understanding of the criteria for General Education curricula


What s the problem

SB 342, cont’d

  • Implement a statewide system that permits students and advisers to

    • query and view credit transfer options online

    • conduct degree auditing online


What s the problem

A

(ARTICULATION TRANSFER LINKED AUDIT SYSTEM)


What s the problem

A POWERFUL INTERNET TOOL

THAT…

  • allows students to find equivalent courses anywhere in Oregon - instantly

  • shows students the best match between their own course work and degree/major program in Oregon


What s the problem

How does it work?

Two Components

  • 1. Campus-based degree audit systems, e.g. DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System)

    • CAPP (Curriculum Advising and Program Planning)

+

  • 2. Internet linkage of degree audit systems, e.g.

    • CAS (Course Applicability System)


What s the problem

What does a degree audit system do?

  • Tracks course work completed by individual students

  • Shows which degree requirements have been met and which need to be completed


What s the problem

What does internet linkage add?

  • A central source of accurate transfer informationfor students and advisors

  • Immediate comparison of a student’s completed or contemplated course work with degree programs at any linked school


What s the problem

Where are Linked Degree AuditSystems Used?

CAS:18 institutions3 state-wide systems


What s the problem

Implementation in Oregon:

2 Phases

  • Phase 1: OUS schools

  • 2-3 Community Colleges

  • Funded by OUS Chancellor

  • Who will benefit?

    • Students transferring among OUS schools

    • Students transferring from Community Colleges to OUS schools


  • What s the problem

    Implementation in Oregon:

    2 Phases

    • Phase 2: All Community Colleges

  • Funded by legislature (??)

  • Who will benefit?

    • Students transferring among Community Colleges

    • Students transferring from OUS schools toCommunity Colleges


  • What s the problem

    Where are we now?

    • OUS Degree Audit Systems:

    • OSU (CAPP)

    • PSU (DARS)

    • UO (DARS)

    • WOU (CAPP – installation)

      • SOU (CAPP – installation)

      • EOU (?)

      • OIT (CAPP – planning)

    What s the problem

    OREGON ATLAS

    • IS ALREADY IN ACTION AT PSU


    What s the problem

    TRY IT YOURSELF

    • Here’s a demonstration of OREGON ATLAS

    • that you can use just as a student would.

    • You can:

    1)look for courses anywhere in Oregon

    that are equivalent to one you need

    2)match your courses with a PSU degree program

    • Print out the next slide as a guide,

    • and go to http://www.cas.pdx.edu


    What s the problem

    Note: Areas demarked by different shades of yellow correspond to groups of courses that substitute for each other. You can see this in the General Chemistry example, where lectures and labs go together but are often listed as individual courses.

    • You will be at a PSU Admissions page

    • Click “Members” (in red letters in body of text)

    • MEMBER USERID = Willa@PDX

    • MEMBER PASSWORD = BAR1

    • Note: This login is case sensitive

    • You will now be in the “Member’s Area”

    • 1) To look for equivalent courses at other Oregon schools

    • Go to “Course Equivalency Guides” (buttons on left)

    • Select school to which courses will transfer: “Portland State Univ.”

    • Select a method: “Search by Course”.

    • For example,

    • Dept./ course prefix Course number

    • MTH 251 (Calculus)

    • CH 221 (General Chemistry)

    • Click “Search” and scroll down the window to view

    • the results

    • 2) To match Willa’s courses with a PSU degree program

    • Go to “Planning Guides”

    • You can click “View” to see any of the Planning Guides (aka “degree audit”) that have already been run.

    • To run a fresh audit, click “Request Planning Guide” and follow the directions. It may take a minute for the guide to appear on the page.

    • You can also add courses to Willa’s list (“Your Courses” button on left) and see how the audit responds.

    • Click “Log Out” when finished (bottom of left-hand tool buttons)
