The framework for analyzing the data focused on the definitions of student engagement in the literature. All factors in the definitions were combined to facilitate the application of a single set of factors to the data gathering and analysis.

Therefore, it was concluded that participation in the dual enrollment vocational program enhanced the educational engagement of the participating high school students significantly.Since enrolling in the automotive program he has started to look at courses from the standpoint of how they are ... in the college setting has influenced him a great deal to look at the auto industry rather than just the auto repair industry.
