TSTC is excited to offer Performance-Based Education (PBE)! PBE is the name of TSTC’s course-based Competency-Based Education (CBE) initiative. This modality will help students to focus on mastery of specified industry skills or competencies. It is often self-directed and is either conducted fully online or in a blended learning environment that flips traditional lecture to online and places the emphasis on hands-on learning in a technical lab environment
To find out more about PBE and how it will affect your DE students, please look at this PBE Informational Sheet
The crosswalks listed here are designed to assist our partnering ISD’s identify high school course equivalency for each course completed in our dual enrollment pathways.
Texas State Technical College has designed their crosswalks to align with a specific Program of Study. It is ultimately the high school’s responsibility to determine that each college course meets the high school, private, charter or home school’s TEKS/learning outcomes and to determine if any additional outcomes need to be supplemented by the school/ district.
The suggested crosswalks are not mandated to be used as it is the school district’s responsibility/ authority to choose how to award high school credit in a dual enrollment program.
