The Articulation/Transfer Phenomenon: Patterns and Directions. Horizons Issues Monograph Series.
Kintzer, Frederick C.; Wattenbarger, James L.
This report presents a discussion of articulation and transfer between community colleges and four-year institutions and points to future directions for transfer education. Chapter I examines the current situation regarding transfer education including background information on transfer enrollments; a summary of the literature on transfer enrollments, and performance and persistence; performance and persistence in California and other states; and the implications of the current situation for public policy. Chapter II discusses statewide articulation and transfer and identifies three types of statewide and/or transfer agreements (i.e., formal and legally based policies, state system policies, and voluntary agreements between individual institutions or systems), and provides examples of each of these types of agreements. This chapter also examines the transfer of vocational-technical credits and the transfer potential of upper-level universities. Chapter III reviews significant developments on the international scene including an assessment of developments in Canada, the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, and Ireland. Finally, chapter IV examines some new developments in transfer education including the shift in attention from traditional college students to "the new clientele"; transfer relationships with business/industry, proprietary schools, and the military; major projects undertaken to promote the study of articulation and transfer; and current trends in the area of articulation and transfer.
