Linking Schools and Colleges: An Inventory of Articulation Practices in New York State 1974-75.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of College Evaluation.
This document draws from an extensive review of articulation practices in schools and colleges in New York State. It summarizes and comments on articulation activities, and describes individual programs. Areas discussed are: (1) acceleration and crediting of college-level study; (2) curriculum articulation; (3) guidance, counseling and advisement; (4) admissions and recruitment practices; (5) basic skills development; (6) programs for "new" student groups; (7) sharing of facilities and services; and (8) formal structures for school-college articulation. A general conclusion was that the barriers between schools and colleges be reduced through a variety of approaches within institutions, between comparative specialization units of each sector, between individual institutions, and among institutions in a locality or region. Included are: (1) summary tables on crediting practices, perceived needs, and obstacles in school-college articulation; (2) a listing of contract offices in the New York State Education Department; (3) a bibliography of publications pertaining to articulation; and (4) a questionnaire on articulation practices.
