PASS Guide to Visual & Performing Arts: Teaching and Assessing Proficiency for University Admission. Preliminary 2001-2005 Edition.
Oregon Univ. System, Eugene. Office of the Chancellor.
The Oregon Proficiency-Based Admission Standards System (PASS) is based on standards that describe the academic skills and knowledge students need to demonstrate for acceptance into any of Oregon's seven public universities. The Oregon University System (OUS) created PASS in 1993 for three reasons: (1) PASS aligns college admission with Oregon's statewide K-12 school improvement plan; (2) grades are not an adequate measurement system; and (3) PASS provides admissions offices with better information about applicants. The knowledge and skills students demonstrate through earning the Certificates of Initial and Advanced Mastery (CIM and CAM) serve as the foundation for PASS. This visual and performing arts PASS guide is divided into 18 sections: (1) "Q&A: Introduction to PASS"; (2)"Required and Recommended Standards"; (3) "Visual and Performing Arts Standards and Criteria Summary Chart"; (4) "Making a Summary Judgment"; (5) "Summary Judgment Score Sheet"; (6) "Standard A Scoring Guide"; (7) "Standard A Sufficiency Guidelines"; (8) "Standard B Scoring Guide"; (9) "Standard B Sufficiency Guidelines"; (10) "Standard C Scoring Guide"; (11) "Standard C Sufficiency Guidelines"; (12) "Standard D Scoring Guide"; (13) "Standard D Sufficiency Guidelines"; (14) "Standard E Scoring Guide"; (15) "Standard E Sufficiency Guidelines"; (16) "Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) from Certificates of Initial Mastery (CIM) and Certificates of Advanced Mastery (CAM) to PASS"; (17) "Assessment Guidelines"; (18) "Reports from OUS Institutional Research."
