Abstract: The purpose of the study was to estimate the effects of dual credit on a broad set of student outcomes that trace a student’s journey from high school to college graduation. A second purpose of the study was to investigate the potential for improving the design of dual-credit programs to strengthen their impact. To accomplish this second objective, the study examined dual-credit effect sizes by program attributes such as subject matter taught, the teacher’s highest degree held, mode of instruction, and location of instruction.
