School-College Articulation. Admission Practices Series.
Healy, Scott F.; And Others
A survey was done in order to describe and analyze how high school guidance counselors and college admission and transfer counselors operate within the college selection process and to recommend strategies to improve articulation among these groups. The survey involved four types of counselors, high school counselors, admission counselors at two-year institutions, admission counselors at four-year institutions, and transfer counselors at two-year institutions, and was conducted in two stages: Stage One identified categories of articulation tasks while Stage Two measured levels of agreement and ratings of importance for the identified articulation tasks. The second stage survey was mailed to 1,500 counseling professionals, and the response rate was 49 percent. Results found that at the college/university to high school level, there does not appear to be an articulation crisis though counselors indicate room for improvement. However, the articulation services provided to transfer students by four-year colleges are seen by transfer counselors as inadequate. Though each of the counselor groups suggested different ways to improve their services, all called for more formal strategic planning. The document includes 16 references and two appendixes containing copies of the surveys. (JB)
