A Call to Action by the State of Indiana:Assessable, Affordable, Accountable

Indiana Commission of Higher Education (September 2008)

  • Moving beyond college access to degree success

  • Ensuring college is affordable

  • Embracing accountability for results

  • In Indiana, only 36% of high school graduates earn a college degree in 4 years, 57% do so in 6 years.


Gap in Perceptions of High School and University Faculty, “Are students prepared for college?”


Purdue Calumet Dual Credit Program

  • Recognized by the United States Department of Education.

  • Ensure rigor and overall quality of courses. The courses at HAST are PUC courses.

  • Ensure that students develop foundational skills that are essential to college attainment and workforce readiness. These include oral and written communication skills, critical thinking skills, and problem solving techniques.

  • Strive to prepare students to be successful in our ever changing global society.


Creation of Dual Credit Courses:HAST and PUC Faculty Partnerships

  • University Lead faculty member paired with a high school teacher (high school teacher will teach the course under the supervision of the university faculty member).

  • Collaborate on curriculum and pedagogy.

    Standard Deviation, and Pearson Correlation

  • Quantitative/Standardized Assessment (common exams)
