North Harris Montgomery Community College District Articulation Manual.
Lyon, Pat Rajski; And Others
Compiled by the Curriculum Services Office Staff at the North Harris Montgomery Community College District (NHMCCD), in Texas, this manual provides information on administrative issues related to articulation agreements between NHMCCD and area high schools, focusing on competency based course articulation, tech prep initiatives, and dual credit articulation. The first two chapters provide an introduction to articulation and a glossary of terms used. Chapter 3 lists 15 benefits to entering into articulation agreements, while chapter 4 briefly describes 12 types of agreements, from advanced placement courses to tech prep to 2+2 programs. Chapters 5 and 6 review common barriers to articulation, such as turfism and unrealistic deadlines, and financial considerations. Chapter 7 describes issues related to articulating competency based curricula. Chapters 8 through 11 provide NHMCCD-specific information on how to apply, update, and cancel articulation agreements, including 14 steps in an articulation flow chart. Chapter 12 discusses the tech prep process, linking the efforts of business/industry, secondary, and post-secondary institutions to provide better training from the ninth grade through the post-secondary level. Finally, chapters 13 to 16 explain the dual credit articulation procedure, distribution of articulation materials to appropriate personnel, how to apply for articulated credit, and recordkeeping and data gathering. Appendixes include sample articulation forms from the NHMCCD, contact lists for NHMCCD schools, a summary of personnel duties, promotional materials, and sample tech prep education plans. (TGI)
