The purpose of this study is to focus on the Obeys college and career investments and determine: Obeys expectation for a plan to address Oregon college and career readiness; how these investments align to high school students' successful completion of at least nine college credits prior to high school graduation; how successful Eastern Promise as. non-Eastern Promise high school students are in completing at least nine college credits prior to high school graduation; and how scalable the Eastern Promise early college program is statewide. The study investigated a purposeful sample of high schools participating in Eastern Promise compared to a purposeful sample of non-Eastern Promise high schools in an effort to determine how many students acquired at least nine college credits prior to high school graduation, graduate from high school in four years, and enroll in a post-secondary institution the following semester.
After a single year of pilot data, the Eastern Promise is lacking substantial and adequate quantitative data to determine how effective the Eastern Promise is in students completing at least nine credits prior to high school graduation, graduating from high school, and enrolling in a post-secondary institution as compared to a control group of Eastern Oregon high school students. Eastern Promise data availability for 2012-2013 is strictly limited to credit by proficiency overall performance by college course and only represented by academic grade and pass/withdraw rates.
The OB investments for the Eastern Promise have been allocated so $2,000,000 will support the existing program in Eastern Oregon, and another $2,000,000 will be allocated to scale the Eastern Promise across Oregon through the RIP process. Structured and operative supports for diverse students' needs to ensure that all students have the opportunity to take college courses through the Eastern Promise could address at-risk student access.
