    Abstract: This FRSS survey is designed to collect information from 
public secondary schools nationwide on dual credit and exam-based 
courses. Dual credit, whereby high school students can earn both high 
school and postsecondary credits for the same courses, is an area that 
has grown rapidly over the past decade. High school advanced placement 
courses and international baccalaureate programs are also offered by 
many schools and may affect subsequent postsecondary options. This 
survey is designed to obtain a variety of information on this growing 
area. This information can provide education policymakers with 
important baseline information about the prevalence and characteristics 
of dual credit courses.
