An Audit Report on Dual Credit Programs at Selected ISDs and Higher Education Institutions (Website)

Rating: 5.0/5 (4 votes cast)

View Full Post



Overall Conclusion
All selected community colleges' and corresponding independent school districts' (ISDs) dual credit programs fully or substantially complied with most state requirements, as well as with the applicable community colleges' and ISDs' policies and procedures.

Ten of the 12 community colleges reviewed fully or substantially complied with all requirements related to ensuring that students met minimum test scores and completed prerequisite courses to enroll in dual credit courses. Eight of the 12 community colleges reviewed fully or substantially complied with all requirements related to ensuring that all dual credit teachers met the requirements to teach dual credit courses and were approved prior to the courses' start dates.

However, 10 of the 12 community colleges reviewed should improve their monitoring and evaluation of dual credit courses and/or teachers. In addition, 8 of the 12 community colleges should improve their contract agreements for dual credit programs with at least one ISD tested to ensure that the contract agreements include all of the elements required by the Texas Administrative Code and are signed by representatives of both the community college and ISD prior to the offering of dual credit courses.

To determine the dual credit programs' compliance with state rules and regulations and community college and ISD policies and procedures, auditors tested compliance in five general areas. Those areas were:
  • Student eligibility.

  • Teacher requirements.

  • Monitoring and evaluation.

  • Contract agreements.

  • Policies and procedures.


Auditors also identified other less significant issues that were communicated separately in writing to each community college reviewed.

Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn academic college or career and technology credit towards a post secondary certificate or degree at South Texas College (STC) that will also count as credit toward a high school diploma. Dual enrollment courses are college courses. Students should understand that the amount of work necessary to succeed in dual enrollment courses may be greater than that of high school courses. In addition, dual enrollment courses become a part of a student’s permanent college record and transcript. Students should check with their high school guidance counselor prior to enrolling in dual enrollment courses.

Recorded at TCCTA's Annual Convention 2012.
Speaker: Gemmy Allen, Professor of Management & Marketing, North Lake College

It is challenging to teach the traditional student, but it is even more challenging to teach the non-traditional student. The situation gets even more complicated as college professors find themselves teaching four generations. This is the first time in American history that we have had four different generations sitting side-by-side in the classroom.
  • Silents (Born between 1925 and 1946)

  • Baby Boomers (Born between 1946 and 1964)

  • Generation Xers (Born between 1965 and 1980)

  • Generation Ys or Millennials (born after 1980)


Each generation varies with different values, ideas, and ways of communicating. Millenials, teens and twenty-somethings, are the newest generation entering college. Attend this presentation and find out how you compare with Millenials and other generations.

    The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) has established the college and career readiness standards Faculty Collaborative Initiative to provide faculty at institutions of higher education who prepare pre-service teachers with the latest information and resources regarding the implementation of the standards.

    The activities of the Faculty Collaborative are designed to ensure that prospective teachers receive preparation that is closely aligned with the College and Career Readiness Standards. This will in turn allow new teachers to better prepare their students to be college-ready.

    The College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) were jointly developed and adopted by the THECB and the Texas Education Agency (TEA). There are standards in four content areas—mathematics, science, English language arts and social studies—as well as a set of cross disciplinary standards. K-12 schools in Texas are incorporating these standards into their curricula and instruction, and the Faculty Collaborative is helping institutions of higher education incorporate these standards into their teacher preparation programs.

    Transfer101 was created by The University of Texas System in partnership with The Texas A&M University System and the Texas Association of Community Colleges.

    More than 50 percent of students begin their higher education journey at a community college. However, available data shows that students are not realizing the full potential of these educational pathways. Texas is losing an intellectual talent pool, communities are losing economic development opportunities, and families are not moving from poverty to the middle class.

    The UT System and its partners seek to increase the number of students transferring from community colleges to four-year institutions. These students are proven to have the capability and motivation needed to succeed as statistics show that students who transfer from a community college to a university are graduating at higher rates than first-time, full-time freshman.

    One critical way Transfer101 will facilitate success is by ensuring students have easy access to the information and tools they need to make the transition to a senior institution.

    In this module we will focus on the basic principles of student assessment. To set the stage, we introduce two online course evaluation tools:

    Quality Matters™ Rubric for Online and Hybrid Courses

    • K-12 iNACOL National Standards for Quality Online Teaching

    • Both documents provide an overall robust set of standards for online courses and for instructor evaluation. They define what constitutes excellence in all facets of online course development and instructor best practice.


    We will highlight what both documents have to say with respect to assessment practices in the online classroom. Along the way we will provide practical tips and strategies that can help both teachers and students find success. (Click here for a transcript.)

    Since no two students learn exactly the same way, it is suggested teachers take an approach to teaching and learning that offers students multiple options for taking in information and making sense of ideas.

    An online course with curriculum presented in a variety of ways helps target a range of student learning styles and multiple intelligences.

    In this module we will:

    • Discuss theoretical perspectives related to learning styles and multiple intelligences.

    • Provide practical teaching strategies that address individual learning styles and multiple intelligences in the classroom.

    As part of its free, live webinar series, the Texas Network for Teaching Excellence in Career and Technical Education (the Network) would like to invite you to a presentation on Renewable Energy program development in the Community College by Edward Ardizoni of Austin Community College.

    In response to Austin Energy’s requirement to provide 20% of Austin’s energy through renewable sources by 2012, and 30% by 2020, Austin Community College was tasked to train a workforce to support the new renewable energy industry. The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) established a nationally recognized level of knowledge examination for the solar/renewable industry. Austin Community College currently offers test preparatory classes that are designed to meet the NABCEP competencies at the entry and professional level. Students are exceeding the national examination passing average by 30% and the program has been enthusiastically embraced by the community. This webinar will focus on how the program was designed and will provide tips and ideas on how other Community Colleges can create similar programs at their institutions.

    Edward Ardizoni is the coordinator for the continuing education renewable energy program at Austin Community College (ACC). Ed has worked at ACC for 16 years in various rolls; Adjunct Professor and Assistant Professor for the Electronics and Advanced Technology Department and currently Coordinator for the Business & Industry Institute. As coordinator, he is tasked with procuring equipment and instructional talent to support the training program and sustain workforce benchmarks for the emerging renewable energy industry.

    The webinar was held April 10, 2009 at 10:30am.
