Dr. Julie Edmunds

Dr. Julie Edmunds (School of Education / SERVE) received a continuation of funding from Jobs for the Future for the project “Early College Expansion Project Evaluation (I3).”

According to the abstract, the third-party evaluation of ECEP will assess the extent to which ECEP is having a positive impact on student outcomes associated with readiness for and success in college. The evaluation will also collect detailed data on implementation to examine the level of implementation and to provide useful feedback to the program developers.

The research questions include both impact and implementation questions:

  • To what extent does ECEP result in improved student outcomes, including increased college preparatory course-taking and success, increased numbers of students staying in school, increased high school graduation rates and increased college credits earned while in high school?
  • What services have been provided to schools? What has been the perceived quality and benefit of those services?
  • To what extent have participating schools and districts implemented the design elements of an Early College?
