Articulation Program between Secondary and Postsecondary Institutions in Computer Technology. Final Report.
A performance-based articulation program in data processing was developed between a secondary and postsecondary institution. Focus was on communication between secondary and postsecondary schools related to articulation needs, development of a common data base, and the identification of career options. The project had nine objectives, among which are the following: (1) to develop a system which eliminates the duplication of learned skills, (2) to identify program area articulation opportunities at the secondary and postsecondary levels, (3) to organize a performance-based instructional program for data processing where competencies are set for the secondary and postsecondary levels, (4) to construct the specific curriculum for each occupation within a program area through the use of task inventories, (5) to write instructional modules for each occupation within a program area, and (6) to develop criterion-referenced tests for each module. A project evaluation indicated that the objectives were accomplished and the two institutions made good progress toward articulation. (The appendix, comprising two-thirds of this report, contains the following: data processing competencies for computer programming, computer operations, and key punch operator; a program matrix and job mobility chart; a secondary and postsecondary course of study; a curriculum matrix for data processing; examples of three modules; a student progress checklist; and a task analysis guide.)
