Problems in Two-Year College Chemistry. Supplementary Report.
Advisory Council on Coll. Chemistry.
This supplementary report of the Committee on Curriculum and Advanced Courses of the Advisory Council on College Chemistry provides an analysis of problems in two-year college chemistry. It gives close attention to the transfer of students from junior colleges to full degree institutions. The course requirements necessary in junior college chemistry to ensure smooth transfer of students to the higher institution are examined. The four stated goals for effective articulation between institutions are (1) transfer students should not be forced to take additional courses at the higher institution, (2) a junior college transfer student should require the same number of credit hours to graduate as a student who completed bachelor's requirements in the senior institution, (3) junior college courses must fit the course requirements of the state college or university, and (4) colleges and campuses within an area should agree on lower division prerequisites for a major. Problems of the junior college transfer student particularly in California and Florida are discussed, and the present attitude of the American Chemical Society to these colleges is outlined. (GR)
