Project MAVE - Model for Articulated Vocational Education. Final Report.
Based on the need to strengthen articulation activities within the Illinois educational system, this project was designed to provide a formal articulation mechanism utilizing the concept of institutional coordination for the development of comprehensive vocational programs and services. Phase 1 of the project developed an articulation process model and articulation guide based on four major elements: (1) building a cooperative climate, (2) expanding communication among staff, (3) developing sequenced kindergarten through postsecondary programs, and (4) coordinating kindergarten through postsecondary services. The articulation guide provides the framework for reducing articulation problems by presenting methods, ideas, and suggestions for implementing articulation practices in various educational settings. Phase 2 of the project measured the utility of the articulation guide to local education agencies in their attempts to formalize articulation practices. The guide was field tested at eight sites throughout the state to validate the effectiveness and feasibility of the materials, supply data for possible refinement, and determine effective means of implementation and dissemination of the materials. In phase 3, fourteen additional sites were selected for implementation. (Included in the appendixes are four essential elements for effective articulation, factors leading to good articulation, and successes and barriers to articulation.) (LRA)
