Dear Valued Participant:

My name is Tara Jensen, and I am a junior at Newark Charter High School. I am currently working with my school’s AP Research program to conduct this study. I would like to thank you for participating in my study and being a part of my project; you are an essential part of this research process. The overall purpose of my research is to discover how career education classes in high schools (also known as career pathways in some schools) impact student success in college. My purpose is to find out how making career choices early on in high school affects the college experience for students.

By participating, the only task I am asking that you complete is to fill out a survey to the best of your ability. I will be asking you to complete the survey twice. This is not to confuse or trick you; completing the survey more than once is simply to verify responses and increase research accuracy. The survey will not be very time consuming, and should only take about 5 minutes. I will collect your results, but your responses and personal information will remain anonymous. If you are unable to answer any questions because of personal reasons or otherwise, you may leave the question blank. This will be noted, but other results will still be useful in the study.

Please understand that your participation is 100% voluntary, and you may choose to exit the research study at any point. Your personal information will not be published and no information will be attached to any results. All information from the survey is completely confidential. There are no risks other than an increased awareness of career decision making skills.

Your participation is especially valuable to me and my project. Please check below to formally verify your agreement to participate in the study. Thank you for your help and consideration of my research! I appreciate your participation!
