Dual Enrollment: A Qualitative Study of a Program in a Metropolitan Area of Georgia
Miley-Denson, Porsha M.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
This study was conducted with the aim of establishing the effectiveness of the dual enrolment program as currently conducted between high school and college. It was contributory to the studies that have been previously conducted on college education, high school transition into college and the overall dual enrolment program. While conducting this research, a sample of 20 respondents was used all from the same location geographically and approximately the same age group. Unlike most of previous research, this study focused more on the opinions of the students who had undergone the program rather than the grade performance and judgment accorded by their instructors. As such, most of the research takes on a qualitative aspect due to the focus of the study, rather than descriptive analyses of the performance of the students. The analysis of the findings reveals that the students found the program effective although they had a few recommendations for change that could be implemented in order to make it better. It was also noted that the program tends to focus more on the literary aspect of education often ignoring social and emotional development. These were some of the needs that would need to be implemented should the program need to be improved. However, most of the students indicate a strong preference for use of the program and advocate for others to join it due to the benefits it makes available to them. Recommendations are made for the changes that should be made to the program to make it more effective. Further research is also suggested in this line of study to ensure that the remaining gaps will be covered. Generally though, the findings of the study advocate for more students and schools to use the program in their system.
