POLICIES AFFECTING ACCEPTANCE OF TRANSFER CREDIT FOR COURSES IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION.
PURTZER, WAYNE R.
A 16-STATE QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEY OF 80 COLLEGES WAS DESIGNED TO IDENTIFY THE POLICIES OF THESE INSTITUTIONS CONCERNING GRANTING OF CREDIT FOR TECHNICAL SKILLS ACQUIRED IN OTHER SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES, MILITARY TRAINING, AND WORK EXPERIENCE. USABLE RESPONSES WERE OBTAINED FROM 48 COLLEGES. ALL COLLEGES EXCEPT ONE GRANTED SUCH CREDIT FOR COURSES IN ACCREDITED JUNIOR COLLEGES, HALF REFUSED CREDIT FROM NONACCREDITED TECHNICAL SCHOOLS, 40 PERCENT WOULD NOT GRANT CREDIT FOR WORK EXPERIENCE, AND ABOUT 20 PERCENT WERE UNWILLING TO ACCEPT MILITARY COURSES FOR CREDIT. EXAMINATIONS OR OTHER DEMONSTRATIONS OF PROFICIENCY WERE COMMONLY EMPLOYED. THE TYPE OF INSTITUTIONAL ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE RELATED TO THE POLICIES. ALTHOUGH THE LARGER COLLEGES WERE MORE LIKELY TO GRANT CREDIT FOR NONCOLLEGIATE EXPERIENCE, SMALLER INDUSTRIAL ARTS DEPARTMENTS TENDED TO BE MORE GENEROUS THAN LARGER. WHERE PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS WERE USED, THEY WERE COMMONLY PREPARED WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT, BUT HALF OF THE RESPONDENTS INDICATED A WILLINGNESS TO CONSIDER STANDARDIZED TESTS FOR SUCH PURPOSES. (WO)
