The American Council on Education’s Center for Policy Research and Strategy (CPRS), in partnership with Hobsons, recently released the second study in its series exploring the outcomes of community college students. The report, Identifying Predictors of Credential Completion Among Beginning Community College Students, explores the relationships between demographic, high school, and college-level factors and the probability of completing a credit-based sub-baccalaureate certificate, associate degree, or bachelor’s degree for direct-from-high-school enrollees. It concludes with seven recommendations for policy and practice.
In this webinar, Dr. Jonathan Turk from ACE discusses the findings from the new report. Joined by Dr. Ellen Wagner, Hobsons’ VP of Research, and Dr. David Schuler, Superintendent of Township High School District 214, the panelists discuss strategies for educators and state and federal policymakers for increasing credential completion rates for community college students.
