Knoell, discussing major areas of difficulty in facilitating student progress from one level to the next, primarily the portability of credit awarded for achievement in other than regularly scheduled courses; (2) Articulation Between Community Junior Colleges and the Four-Year Institutions, by Sharon MacLaren, providing an historical perspective on articulation problems and suggestions for lessening them; (3) Other Measures of Expected Competencies, by Richard L. Rinehart, examining different approaches to evaluating the experiences of career change students in terms of the criteria for college degrees; (4) Communication and Intercollege Cooperation, by J. Norman Hostetter, discussing information that needs to be made available to transfer students; and (5) Where Is All the Information About Transfers?, by Ernest W. Beals, discussing the Transfer Information Service program. The workshop agenda and a list of participants are provided. (LH)
