Report Career-Technical EMIS Data as Early as Possible
The following appeared in EdConnection on July 13, 2020.
The Ohio Departments of Education and Higher Education, through the Career-Technical Articulation Verification project, are improving students’ chances of receiving postsecondary transfer credit for qualified career-technical education courses by sharing course and technical assessment data in EMIS. To guarantee students receive those credits, districts must report course and technical assessment data in EMIS. Qualified students will have their data flagged for transfer credit, without having to submit paper verification, when enrolling in an Ohio public postsecondary institution. Early reporting of technical assessment (EMIS Assessment Type GY) records in the Fiscal Year 2020 Career Tech Accountability Assessment Collection (2020ACTSP) allows for timely and accurate advising of students enrolling in Ohio public postsecondary institutions in autumn. Postsecondary transfer credits empower students to make informed decisions about their futures, including the potential for attending Ohio public higher education institutions. They also save students and their families time and the cost of repeating courses.
