CTE-Focused Dual Enrollment: Participation and Outcomes
This study from our Network team at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and RAND Corporation examined participation in North Carolina's Career & College Promise CTE dual enrollment pathway. The study found that about 9% of North Carolina students participated in CTE dual enrollment courses in 11th or 12th grade and that disparities in participation among subgroups were less than for college transfer dual enrollment courses. In addition, using a quasi-experimental approach to examine the effect of the program, the study found that participation in the CTE dual enrollment pathway was positively associated with college credits earned in high school, graduation from high school, and overall enrollment in college within one year after high school.
