The Amesbury Early College Program: Preliminary First-Year Outcomes
Leonard, Jack
Online Submission
This year, an experimental group of 31 academically average high school sophomores were dual enrolled in both high school and college and will earn nine college credits by June. This paper presents a mid-year evaluation of student academic outcomes, which will be used for program improvement and future planning. The researcher is a member of the design team. Both quantitative (student transcripts and surveys) and qualitative (interviews and classroom documents) data were collected and analyzed. Specifically, the report demonstrates that the students match the middle two academic quartiles of the school, that the dual enrollment courses match or exceed college standards in almost every respect and that most of the students are thriving and committed to remaining with the project next year. Student Survey and First Quarter Syllabus are included. (Contains 7 tables and 1 figure.)
