Each of the use cases includes policy and program questions to consider, a list of key data needs, useful analytics, suggested feedback to request from data users, and emerging needs related to the data use. Chapter 3 outlines a number of overarching issues for the use of CCR data, and Chapter 4 summarizes key points and emerging needs identified throughout the Guide.

This file contains data from a quick-response survey titled "Dual Enrollment Programs and Courses for High School Students, 2010-11".

Questionnaires were mailed to the PEQIS institutions in September 2011. Institutions were told that the survey was designed to be completed by the person(s) most knowledgeable about dual enrollment at the institution. Respondents had the option of completing the survey online. Telephone follow-up of nonrespondents was initiated in October 2011; data collection and clarification were completed in February 2012. The response rates were 93 percent unweighted and 94 percent weighted.
This survey collected information on the enrollment of high school students in college-level courses within and outside of dual enrollment programs. Institutions reported on the types of eligibility requirements for high school students to participate in dual enrollment programs. Other survey topics included whether courses were taught through distance education or at various locations, and whether the courses were taught by college or high school instructors. The survey also included questions about which sources paid tuition and the types of expenses generally paid out of pocket by students and their parents. Data on whether institutions had a dual enrollment program geared specifically toward high school students at risk of educational failure were also collected.

Respondents were offered the option of completing the survey via the Web. Telephone follow-up for survey nonresponse and data clarification was initiated in October 2011 and completed in February 2012. The weighted response rate was 91 percent.
The survey asked respondents to report information on courses for which they could earn dual credit with any postsecondary institution. Respondents reported on requirements that students must meet in order to enroll in dual credit courses. Data on whether students took any courses with an academic focus or with a career and technical/vocational focus were also collected.
