State dual enrollment policies : addressing access and quality by Melinda Mechur Karp( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Policymakers and educators seek options for helping high school students transition successfully into postsecondary education. Though there are a variety of approaches to doing this; some initiatives are based on a body of research demonstrating that postsecondary success is predicated on both rigorous academic preparation and a clear understanding of the expectations in college. Dual enrollment programs allow high school students to enroll in college courses and earn college and high school credit simultaneously, thereby exposing them to the academic and social demands of postsecondary education. This report identifies 10 features along which dual enrollment programs can vary: (1) target population; (2) admissions requirements; (3) location; (4) student mix; (5) the background characteristics of the instructors; (6) course content; (7) method of credit-earning; (8)program intensity; (9) funding; and (10) state mandates. This report emphasizes the many choices inherent in creating policies that address multiple elements of a state education system. The conclusion presented in this report provides recommendations to policymakers and program regulators: (1) Clarify program goals so that the policies and regulations support the stated goals of the program; (2) Identify funding mechanisms that meet the needs of all stakeholders; (3) Think through the implications of both minimal and detailed dual enrollment policies; (4) Develop ways to ensure the rigor of dual enrollment courses; (5) Consider the needs of students beyond academic course taking; and (6) Meet the needs of students interested in technical courses as well as academic courses. A methodological appendix is included. (Contains 12 exhibits.)

Adult College Completion Tool Kit by Michelle Tolbert( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This "Adult College Completion Tool Kit" is designed to connect state administrators and local practitioners to the strategies, resources, and technical assistance tools resulting from the Department's work. States can use this information to identify and implement state adult education leadership priorities, supported by federal "Adult Education and Family Literacy Act" ("aefla") funds, which encourage and support adult learners transitioning to college. The tool kit focuses on three areas: (1) Access: Academic preparation, financial resources, and other support students need to enroll in postsecondary education programs; (2) Quality: Evidence-based practices used by programs to ensure their services prepare students adequately for postsecondary education; and (3) Completion: Administrative policies and programmatic approaches to encourage student persistence in postsecondary education programs. In each chapter, strategies, resources, and tools relevant to adult education administrators and local adult education practitioners are highlighted. Each chapter also includes state and local examples illustrating how programs can improve the college transition process for their students. The tool kit concludes with a call to action. A summary list of the resources and tools described in the chapters and handouts for four target student populations--adult basic education students, incarcerated individuals, veterans, and high-skill immigrants--are provided in the appendix. Administrators and practitioners can use these handouts to encourage their students to meet the president's challenge and prepare for at least one year of postsecondary education or training. Appended are: (1) Tools and Resources; (2) Adult Learners: Five Steps to Prepare for College; (3) Individuals in Corrections: Five Steps to Prepare for College; (4) Veterans: Five Steps to Prepare for College; and (5) High-Skill Immigrant: Five Steps to Prepare for College.
