How do advanced coursetaking patterns relate to students’ likelihood of college matriculation and success? SDP alumni in Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) share their findings from an extension of the college-going diagnostic developed in partnership with SDP. Participants will learn how WCPSS and CEPR operationalized AB and IB data into student-level indicators, and they will develop a plan for exploring the state of advanced coursetaking patterns at home.
