COLLABORATIVE refers to the collective effort of high school and college instructors to create a core curriculum and a common set of instructional objectives for students at each stage of a four-level language program.
ARTICULATION ensures that students move smoothly through a course of study, from one level to the next. It addresses the problems that students encounter when they make transitions between high school courses and the college classroom.
ASSESSMENT measures give students an indication of their potential university course placement. Listening, speaking, reading, and writing tests provide feedback to high school students and their teachers about general performance levels.
THE PROJECT was initiated in 1992 by The Ohio State University, Columbus State Community College, and Columbus Public Schools, with a grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Post-secondary Education. In 1994, CAAP added suburban schools in the greater Columbus area.
