Michigan Articulation Handbook.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
This handbook contains guidelines and recommendations for secondary and postsecondary faculty and administrators in developing articulation agreements. It defines articulation, lists student and educational institution benefits, and describes the following types: accelerated placement; business, professional, or private organization certification; credit by examination; and formal articulation agreements. These steps in a formal articulation agreement process are discussed: discussion, curriculum alignment, refinement of proposed programs, approval process, and agreement review provision. A discussion of implementing articulation lists information to be provided to and items to be processed by the student. Other sections cover the agreement review process, cancellation, expiration, and distribution of articulation materials. Issues to address about articulation are outlined: geography, consumer information, common language or criteria for outcomes, academic freedom, revenue perception, posting methods, timelines, learner centered, regular curriculum review and update, turfism, open dialog channels, commitment to long-term goals, leadership and support, articulated credit, curriculum groups, realistic deadlines, and student follow-up. Common definitions are followed by information on administrative aspects of articulation: administrators' commitment, upper-level enrollment increases, process familiarization, direct faculty involvement, articulation responsibilities, and competency validation.
