A Study of the Success of Adult Upgrading Graduates in the First Semester of Postsecondary Programs
Collection: Research Materials
This report is made up of charts and bar graphs that illustrate the postsecondary outcomes of students who had moved from upgrading programs to further education in Ontario’s college system between 2003 and 2010.
It includes information on students’ choice of programs; numbers of students who switch programs; retention rates; and grade point average (GPA).
The authors note that in terms of retention and GPA, students from adult upgrading programs show they are well prepared, both academically and personally, to succeed in postsecondary education. In addition, the low rate of program changes indicates that adult upgrading programs have helped students make the appropriate program selections.
