College Readiness Partnerships
NCPR is conducting a study to better understand ways that colleges and high schools work together to improve students’ college readiness. In this project, researchers visited colleges and high schools in Dallas and Houston and reviewed websites of relevant initiatives throughout Texas. The project aims to describe and classify the range of college-connected programs and strategies available to help underprepared high school students become college ready. It also will identify one or more promising approaches that can be rigorously tested in future research. This project builds on the DSB research described above and is funded by IES and Houston Endowment.
