AVID/TOPS 2012–2013 District Findings: Annual Report


Eleni Schirmer (BIO)

Project Assistant, WISCAPE
University of Wisconsin–Madison


For the past four years, WISCAPE has partnered with the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) and the Boys & Girls Club (BGC) of Dane County to conduct an annual assessment of the Advancement Via Individual Determination/Teens of Promise (AVID/TOPS) program. AVID/TOPS is designed to increase college preparation, postsecondary education access and degree attainment, and academic achievement for under-represented students in the academic middle.

The 2012-13 WISCAPE report analyzes measurable outcomes for AVID/TOPS students that reflect the program’s stated goals. The report evaluates impacts of the program for high school students enrolled in the program during 2012-13 and considers the relationship between time spent in the program and student outcomes among the 2009 and 2010 freshman cohorts of AVID/TOPS participants.
