The Articulation of Curricula Between Two and Four-Year Colleges and Universities.
Darnes, G. Robert
Because Florida has an eight-year lead on Illinois in the coordination and articulation of curricula between the public junior colleges and universities, some of the curricular problems encountered by Florida educational planners are presented in this resource paper, with recommendations for the Illinois Junior College Board. Following a summary of the legal basis for curriculum coordination and articulation, the author suggests, as a first step, uniform general education requirements among all institutions of higher education. Using Florida as an example, general education requirements for several junior colleges in that state and admission requirements for two Florida universities that offer only upper-division courses are outlined. Advanced placement and transfer policies are also discussed. Chapters 3 and 4 discuss the basis for state planning and junior college research. A chapter on articulation by subject area is also included. The final chapter summarizes progress in articulation programs in both Florida and Illinois. The ten recommendations resulting from this study are listed. They include suggestions for various on-going discussion groups among junior college representatives and for uniform policies regarding general education requirements, transfer programs, and advanced placement programs.
