National Survey of Secondary Education. Bulletin, 1932, No. 17. Monograph No. 10: Articulation of High School and College

At a time when a large portion of the pupils who have completed the work of the secondary school continues into higher institutions of learning, neither the group of secondary schools nor the aggregation of colleges has a right to consider its problems out of relation to the level of education above or below it. During the past few years a definite effort has been made in the United States to eliminate the gaps between the units of education. Educational training is being made naturally continuous for pupils. This natural continuity is made possible as the units of education become more and more effectively articulated. It is the purpose of this investigation to discover the steps which are being taken by the colleges in improving their articulation with secondary schools. Articulation in this study does not refer merely to the methods employed by higher institutions in selecting students for admission, but refers equally as much to the means of adaptation subsequent to admission and to the actual plans in operation by which colleges and secondary schools constituent to them are brought into closer relationship. It has been found necessary to report a certain amount of status in order that trends and innovations may become discernible. This study is the only project of the National Survey of Secondary Education which deals specifically with the problem of the articulation of secondary schools and higher institutions. An investigation supplementary to this study has been made, dealing with the types of innovations in colleges and universities affecting the liberal arts education for students during their first two years of college attendance. The findings of the corollary study will bear special relationship to that portion of this report which deals with the means used by higher institutions in adapting newly admitted students to the college situation. The information presented in this study was secured mainly from an inquiry form filled in for 517 higher institutions. Use was made also of certain data included in inquiry forms which had been returned by large numbers of public and private secondary schools. This bulletin is divided into five chapters, as follows: (1) Purpose and Scope of the Study; (2) Admission to College; (3) Means of Adaptation Subsequent to Admission; (4) Improvement of Articulation; and (5) Summary, Trends, and Problems. (Contains 30 tables, 5 figures, and 14 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
