New Challenges in Articulation.
Nelson, James H.
This speech reviews past articulation efforts on the national level, comments on present articulation efforts, and looks ahead to new forces which will probably affect articulation. Past and present efforts discussed included the Knoell-Medsker study, which generated articulation guidelines, Kintzer's "Nationwide Pilot Study on Articulation," and Willingham's "The Number 2 Access Problem: Transfer to the Upper Division." To improve articulation, Willingham recommended the creation of statewide monitoring agencies, which would make articulation at the local level even more essential. Forces to compel progress toward better articulation are: (1) concerned legislators; (2) emancipated students; (3) new forms of higher education; (4) an increase in influence and numbers of upper level colleges; (5) more liberal accrediting associations; (6) more state agencies for coordination; and (7) increased interest of senior colleges in junior college transfers. It was concluded that the original goal of articulation, enabling students to move through transfer programs with a minimum loss of time and disruption of study, is of utmost importance. (RN)
