Updating Statewide Articulation Practices, 1974.
Kintzer, Frederick C.
This monograph is designed to update the articulation information provided in the author's previous work, "The Middleman in Higher Education" (1973), which identified articulation styles and summarized articulation policies in the fifty states. It notes recent changes in the articulation agreements of 13 states and describes their new statewide and interinstitutional articulation plans. The status of articulation agreements in Florida, Illinois, Texas, Iowa, Arizona, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, California, and Michigan is detailed. This monograph also notes the recommendations of the National Conference on College Transfer; chief among these recommendations are the concepts that state agency obligation with respect to articulation/transfer is coordination rather than control, and that responsibility for student progress through an education system rests with institutions. It is also recommended that articulation plans contain the breadth and flexibility necessary to accommodate the greatly increased numbers of nontraditional students now seeking transfer opportunities. The trends in higher education which influence articulation are listed. (Author/DC)
