PLTW classes are nationally standardized project-based courses that prepare students for college-level work and culminate with a student assessment, which colleges and universities can use to determine if a student earns college credit. The following are ways in which we see post-secondary institutions articulating with PLTW (some institutions define these terms differently, so please verify before making assumptions).
- Course Substitution Credit
PLTW course substitutes for a program course. Treated similarly to AP or transfer credit.
- Advanced Standing Credit
PLTW course eliminates the need for an elective course; or gives them no course credit, but gives them credit to advance their class standing (i.e. early registration, parking preferences, early financial assistance increase due to reaching junior status quicker).
- Partial Course Credit
Grant partial credit for a course, thus reducing the tuition to the student, but not the time.
- Bridge Courses
Course designed specifically to fill any gaps between the PLTW courses and related program courses.
- Retro-Credit Model
Students that successfully complete a higher level course in a sequence are granted program credit for a prerequisite course.
- Test-out or Challenge Exam
Students are allowed to sit for a challenge exam, and upon successful completion will receive credit for the program course.
