Mississippi's Articulation Process: A Work in Progress
Morgan, Cindy; McDavid, Jean Alice; Beedle, Jon
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n2 p135-143 Feb 2008
The integrity of Career and Technical programs in Mississippi has increased in large part due to the implementation of research-based practices in both the curriculum and assessment processes. The use of standard measures has increased the likelihood that postsecondary instructors and administrators accept articulated credit, and secondary instructors are more comfortable using a standard for students across the state. Beginning with only a handful of courses has been positive because problems and other issues can be addressed quickly and easily. Both secondary and postsecondary instructors are included on the curriculum writing and revision teams, which has improved communication. Another benefit of this process has been the ease of transition for students from secondary to postsecondary in program areas. Although articulation is still a "work in progress" in Mississippi, consistency and communication has improved the development process and the benefits to students.
