The Quantum Opportunity Program Demonstration: Implementation and Short-Term Impacts

This study examines the impact of the Quantum Opportunity Program (QOP), which aims to help at-risk youth graduate and enroll in postsecondary education. Findings suggested that QOP increased high school completion rates and enrollment in postsecondary education. However, the program had no effects on achievement test scores, grades or participation in risky behaviors, and, overall, it had a positive impact on those enrolled in the middle third of the baseline (eighth grade) grade distribution more so than other enrollees.
