Helping High School Students Succeed in College Classes
Barnett, Elisabeth
National Center for Restructuring Education, Schools and Teaching (NCREST)
High school students in dual credit (college-level) courses around the country are often those who are the most academically advanced. However, those enrolled in Middle College-Early College (MC-EC) High Schools are taking and passing college courses in great numbers, in spite of membership in groups that may be considered educationally "at risk." This research project gathered information on characteristics, attitudes, skills, and activities of MC-EC students who succeed in dual credit or college classes. High schools can use this information to align their practices with those associated with student success in challenging, college-level coursework.
