Secondary Students Who Earn Postsecondary Credit through Instruction Taken at Their High School: A Working Paper.
Sauer, Kenneth R.
In an effort to understand one aspect of the relationship between the secondary and postsecondary sectors in Indiana, this analysis reports data regarding on-site instruction at the secondary school in which students earn dual credit. Under "dual credit" arrangements, a student simultaneously earns credit that will count toward meeting both high school diploma requirements and postsecondary degree requirements. Two tables report a summary of information from participating institutions on various aspects of dual credit instruction. Five public and four private postsecondary institutions reported offering dual credit instruction at secondary schools. A total of 2,348 students took courses on the dual credit basis in the year of the survey. The first table provides information on: institution, program name, who teaches the class, type of students in the class, how students qualify for the class, how postsecondary credit is awarded, and for what courses students can earn postsecondary credit. The second table presents data on: maximum number of postsecondary credits a student can earn, how many students earned credit, what fees students pay, and whether the institutions received enrollment change funding for these students. An appendix contains sections of the Indiana legal code authorizing dual credit arrangements. (JB)
