This journal article uses longitudinal data from Washington state to investigate the relationships among career and technical education (CTE) enrollment, inclusion in general education, and high school and postsecondary outcomes for students with learning disabilities. Researchers replicated earlier findings that students with learning disabilities who were enrolled in a "concentration" of CTE courses had higher rates of employment after graduation than observably similar students with learning disabilities who were enrolled in fewer CTE courses.

In this webinar, presenters shared findings from a recent study, "Improving College and Career Advising by Extending High School Counselors’ Reach through Deploying Digital Resources and Leveraging Out-of-School Time Organizations". Following the research presentation, professionals from leading Texas OST organizations participated in a panel about solutions, opportunities, and innovative practices to provide more support to students during this transitional time.
This archived webinar recording and slide presentation discusses the use of behavioral science ‘nudges’ in postsecondary settings to increase college enrollment, persistence, and attainment.
Black College Leadership in PK–12 Education amplifies the research and perspectives of HBCU leaders, including four HBCU education deans, on how HBCUs help school districts optimize education for Black preschool, elementary and secondary students. Chapter 6, "HBCU's as a Pathway to Becoming a Scientist", includes the HBCU STEM Success survey work from the HBCU Core Project.
In this video, our research teams discuss the benefits of participating in the College Completion Network, with a focus on how collaborating with fellow researchers and higher education practitioners is helping the teams provide high-quality, actionable evidence that can help move the dial on college completion.
This document presents high-level summaries of the approaches and findings of each network project as well as links to additional resources related to the projects. These projects examined interventions for which there was strong interest at open- and broad-access institutions. College leaders, practitioners, and policymakers can use the findings to guide decision making related to the use and refinement of these interventions.
This Statistics in Brief examines the distribution of college majors between the classes of 1992–93 and 2007–08. It also explores how the relatedness of 2007–08 bachelor’s degree recipients’ jobs to their college major differs from that of 1992–93 bachelor’s degree recipients, 4 years after receiving their bachelor's degrees.
This journal article presents findings from a study of whether disability status and course delivery format affect course completion at a Historically Black College. The results show that students with disabilities are just as likely as peers without disabilities to complete courses, but students with disabilities were less likely to complete online versus traditionally delivered courses.
This paper presents research estimating the impacts of the “pathways” chosen by community college students on credential attainment compared with labor market value.
