(CT)² Research Studies Project

The Ohio and Articulation Transfer Network (OATN) Team is pleased to announce a (CT)² Research Studies Project opportunity to Ohio public colleges and universities.

  • Projects should include students who were awarded articulated career-technical education credit upon enrollment at an institution through the use of statewide articulation agreements [Career-Technical Assurance Guides (CTAGs)], Prior Learning Assessment, or the One-Year Option.
    • A presentation summarizing previous projects completed in 2016 may be viewed here.
