High School-Community College Articulation Follow-up.
Tobias, Sigmund; Everson, Howard
This report describes in detail the development of courses in accounting and data processing offered to high school seniors for college credit. The appendix includes sample final exams in accounting and data processing. Cooperation among personnel from both the secondary and post-secondary levels is essential to the success of such a program. The project covers a two-year period with evaluation by students each year, and indicates that generally, students respond positively to the opportunity to experience college level work while still in high school. They perform as well in articulation courses as in either high school or post secondary courses (determined in follow-up). Expansion of articulation courses is a recommendation. Although this field articulation project is school specific (Queensborough Community College and three New York feeder high schools) the models and methods can be used as a basis for similar programs and evaluation elsewhere.
