Career Technical Education

Articulation Defined

Career Technical Education (CTE) articulation is the process of developing formal, written agreements that identify High School or ROP courses (or sequence of courses) that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, specific course requirements at post-secondary institutions. These agreements provide an opportunity for students to earn college units or placement credit for approved coursework. Articulation assures students and faculty that students have taken the appropriate course. The assessment component of articulation ensures that outcomes for students are similar to those that would have been attained had the course been taken at the community college. This enables the student to progress to the next level of instruction.
