Articulation and Transfer. Topical Paper No. 59.
Kintzer, Frederick C.
The focus of this paper is on major trends influencing articulation and transfer, with primary attention given to statewide influences in translating various features of experiential learning into formal credits. Eleven major trends affecting articulation/transfer are identified and discussed. These include (1) increasing control of public education by state governments; (2) interest and involvement of the federal government and national agencies; (3) diversified advanced placement allowances; (4) work experience applied toward university or community college degrees; (5) development of external degree programs associated with new or existing systems of postsecondary education, and degree programs offered by non-educational organizations; (6) alternative grading procedures; (7) expansion of multi-unit systems; (8) creation of upper-division or upper-level universities; (9) curricular diversity in all types of institutions; (10) improved computer technology applied to the process of articulation and transfer; and (11) greater attention to community college-high school articulation. The education profession is under pressure to establish uniform equal access and opportunity so as to allow students to pursue individual educational goals. Professional educators at the institutional level are best able to establish policies toward that end. (Author/JDS)
