Taylor, Jason L.; Lichtenberger, Eric J.
Illinois Education Research Council
This research brief examines the relationship between high schools' dual credit participation rate and key characteristics of high schools. The brief establishes that there are differences in students' access to dual credit based on the observed characteristics of the high schools in which they enroll. For example, it was found that relative to high schools with low rates of dual credit participation, schools with high dual credit participation rates typically had fewer low-income students and more White students.
