Articulation Activity for Accounting Programs: Project Results and Descriptive Report. Final Report.
In response to the need for a basic articulated accounting curriculum providing for a smooth transition from the secondary to the postsecondary level, Blackhawk Technical Institute (BTI) conducted a project to develop a master list of accounting competencies as the basis of a core accounting curriculum; to determine competency standards; to establish a rating scale for competency evaluation; to develop a competency certificate or record; and to establish professional contacts between secondary and postsecondary staff. The project's objectives were met during a series of three meetings during which representatives from BTI and local high schools: (1) agreed upon objectives, reviewed major competency categories, and established a time frame; (2) presented course outlines, agreed upon course titles, and discussed the skills to be included in the competency record; and (3) completed the categorization of content, selected competencies, agreed upon a rating scale, and determined the record format. The bulk of the report consists of appendices, which provide the request for proposal for the articulation project; BTI's proposal; the letters and minutes corresponding to each meeting; the finalized competency record, which lists competencies by course and provides for evaluation at both the secondary and postsecondary levels; information on BTI's accounting program curriculum, policies, and procedures; area high school curriculum materials; and administrative letters of support.
