* "Ninety percent of the standards will apply to all delivery models and instructors, but there are unique features and challenges of online classes," says NACEP
Executive Director Adam Lowe.
However, until NACEP's benchmarks are more well-established and accepted as norms, WPAs are left with few ways to evaluate the experience students may have had in DC/CE courses and to judge its relative equivalence to first-year writing (FYW) at their institution.
"Experts Showcase Emerging Trends and Innovation in Concurrent Enrollment at NACEP's Annual Conference." NACEP Press Release.
NACEP promotes a more vigorous interaction between its more than 250 member colleges and high schools, with a heavy emphasis on quality control.
The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) defines concurrent enrollment--a subset of the dual-enrollment approach--as providing college-credit-bearing courses taught to high school students exclusively by college-approved high schoolteachers.
The NACEP program also requires that high school teachers and college faculty collaborate on aligning the secondary and postsecondary curriculums.
The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) has incorporated in its standards much of what the best programs have been doing to ensure the integrity of DE courses.
Building a program with validated integrity like the programs described in this book and any that would meet NACEP's accreditation standards costs a lot of money.
I am inclined to believe that the future of DE and test-based credit or placement programs will be very short and the hard work just reaching fruition in the NACEP accreditation program for DE will be deemed unnecessary .
