NCES Releases Two New Reports on Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit
NCES has released two reports today on dual enrollment and dual credit.
'Dual Credit and Exam-Based Courses in U.S. Public High Schools: 2002-03,' is based on the first national survey to provide baseline data on dual credit and exam-based courses, including Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, for public high school students. The report provides national estimates of the number of public high schools that offered dual credit and/or exam-based courses, as well as the number of enrollments in those courses. In addition, it examines the location and educational focus of these courses, dual credit course characteristics, and school requirements surrounding dual credit courses.
Survey findings are presented at the national level and by school characteristics such as enrollment size, school locale, region, and percent minority enrollment.
