New Report from NJ Statewide Data System on Dual-Enrollment Participation

April 19, 2024

A new report from the New Jersey Statewide Data System (NJSDS), Review of Dual-Enrollment Participation and Outcomes in New Jersey, is the first in a two-part series on New Jersey’s dual-enrollment programs, which allow high school students to enroll in college-level courses to earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. This first study analyzes program participation and outcomes and conducts a review of the two primary data sources on the topic.

The second report in this series, expected to be released in summer 2024, will analyze the outcomes of dual-enrollment participants with non-participants and provide insights into the long-term educational outcomes of those enrolled.

NJSDS, formerly the New Jersey Education to Earnings Data System (NJEEDS), is the State of New Jersey’s centralized longitudinal data system for public administrative data. NJSDS is administered by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers’ Bloustein School.

Through coordination with partnering state agencies, NJSDS is a large statewide interagency and intergovernmental platform where data from participating agencies are securely stored to expand access and analysis to improve governance efforts, policymaking, and performance of public initiatives. NJSDS aims to help the public and stakeholders make data-informed decisions to improve public policies and practices for New Jersey residents. This includes facilitating longitudinal and linked-data research, providing statistical data, and publishing reports on the NJSDS website.
