Results and Implications
At the conclusion of the study we offered a comprehensive and
integrated understanding of what program components and activities
increase the chances that students who are involved in academic
outreach programs will be college ready. The project resulted in articles, presentations, working seminars and a book that
evaluated the criteria for effective college preparation programs.
The project's theoretically informed, action based findings
provided valuable resources for individuals who work or study in
college preparation programs and for prospective funders intent on
assessing program effectiveness.
