College Bound: Examining the Impacts of Dual-Credit Courses

In the first study of its kind, researchers examined the impacts of dual-credit math coursework on a range of student outcomes, including college enrollment and course-taking behavior.

The study, performed in Tennessee and co-authored by UNC Chapel Hill’s Steven Hemelt, finds that certain dual-credit courses can have a significant impact on a student’s academic journey.

Hemelt joins CPRE Knowledge Hub managing editor Keith Heumiller to discuss his team’s findings, and their implications for policy, practice and future research.
