Career-Technical Articulation Verification (CTAV)

Overview Training & Documentation Acronyms & Terms FAQs

What is the Career-Technical Articulation Verification (CTAV) initiative?

The Career-Technical Articulation Verification (CTAV) technical initiative is a collaborative effort between the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) to facilitate post-secondary career-technical transfer credit opportunities. New technology allows the electronic exchange of data between the two agencies into ODHE’s Higher Education Information system (HEI). The integration of ODE’s CTE-26 application process and ODHE’s Course Equivalency Management System (CEMS) has allowed for the automation of the submission and approval of secondary courses that align to Career-Technical Assurance Guides (CTAGs). The initiative also phases out the need to submit the paper verification form needed to access the credit for those students that have successfully completed an approved ODE course that aligns to a CTAG and earned the required WebXam score.

CTAV Data Availability

ODE has made student assessment data available via the Career-Technical Articulation Verification (CTAV) report in Higher Education Information System (HEI).  The current student assessment data is expected to become available each July of the calendar year with updates through early fall. This is due to the fact that the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) Student Assessment Data Collection Period does not end until September. CTAV student assessment data is uploaded a few times throughout the summer. The CTAV users will be notified by email when new data is loaded. You can also see the date/time of the last data load when you are requesting a report.
