Dual Enrollment: Strategies, Outcomes, and Lessons for School-College Partnerships: New Directions for Higher Education, Number 158

Edited by Eric Hoffman, Daniel Voloch

Description

What are the goals, practices, policies, and outcomes of programs that enroll high school students in college courses for college credit?

This volume examines:

  • Dual enrollment programs and how they operate
  • Their impact—based on quantitative and qualitative studies—on student achievement and institutional practices
  • How they support a student’s transition to—and success in—college
  • The role of higher education in improving K–12 education

Chapters explore successful models that both build off dual enrollment’s philosophy of school-college partnerships and embrace a more robust framework for supporting college transition.

Andrea Venezia, former Senior Research Associate for the Regional Educational Laboratory West at WestEd, cowrote a key chapter.
