Annual Report to the Ministry of Advanced Education, Training and Technology, 1999-2000.
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer, Vancouver.
This report documents what projects and activities the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) has undertaken in the 1999-2000 fiscal year. This past year, BCCAT has put considerable effort into initiating plans and projects to improve credit transfer arrangements and processes. A prototype for a Web-based electronic transfer credit evaluation form was developed. The Associate Degree Review Task Force prepared and circulated draft curricular revisions as well as a discussion paper on the potential use of the associate degree as a transfer credential. The Council invited articulation committees to submit grant proposals for Transfer Innovation Projects. Other major events include the production of "Principles and Guidelines for Flexible or Innovative Transfer" as a supplement to the "official" transfer policy document and the Student Transfer Handbook, and the establishment of the Task Force on Standards and Processes and the Transfer & Articulation Committee. BCCAT also produced three newsletters and responded to inquiries with respect to potential transfer difficulties. The Council staff provided assistance regarding transfer policy to many individual institutions including several private schools. The Executive Director also met with officials of the Ministry of Education to discuss their plans for the creation of several new Career Technical Centers in British Columbia. (JA)
