Concurrent Session #69 (Tuesday, July 22, 2014)
This workshop will examine how GEAR UP Massachusetts linked GEAR UP participation and academic data with college enrollment and persistence data to identify high school "success factors" that contribute to student performance in college. Presenters will discuss findings for Class of 2011 high school graduates and how they used college enrollment data from National Student Clearinghouse to tell the story of these graduates and how GEAR UP impacted their future. Attendees also will learn how factors such as AP participation, GEAR UP tutoring, a GEAR UP class appear to have influenced college success.
