The goal of this project was to develop, validate, and utilize a process for vertically articulating curriculum between secondary and post secondary levels of vocational technical education throughout the state of Minnesota. Procedures involved the identification of two areas of staff responsibility: research and development, and service to local vocational-technical institutions in Minnesota. Within these areas, functions and objectives were identified and delimited so that the project could be managed by objectives. The results of the project include the following: a developed, validated, and utilized procedure for developing articulation products (task lists and competency records) on a statewide basis in the occupational areas of auto mechanics, secretarial/clerical, food service, construction and accounting; and a process for teachers and administrators to follow as they articulate secondary and postsecondary curriculum. Publications were also developed, printed, and field tested for the purpose of guiding teachers in making decisions during articulation sessions. It was concluded that this system can be used on a continuing basis to update, revise, and impact upon the quality of vocational technical curriculum throughout the state. Five recommendations were made, one being that an active advisory board would be necessary to give a broad decision-making base for the administration of public funds. The appendixes (a major portion of this document) include a vocational instructor's guide on developing performance tests and written tests, an articulation process manual for administrators and consultants on site, and a complete listing of products developed by the project.
