Explanation: Data from the national evaluation of Upward Bound provides the baseline data. The Upward Bound performance reports are and will be used to determine if the performance targets are met. The long-term goals for UB are to maintain the current overall enrollment rate while increasing the percentage of higher-risk students who are served, and to increase the enrollment rate of higher-risk students to 37% by 2007.  
Additional Source Information: Performance Reports

Frequency: Annually.
Collection Period: 2002 - 2003
Data Available: January 2004
Validated By: No Formal Verification.
No formal verification of performance report data The data are self-reported

Limitations: The national evaluation has provided baseline data for UB and also provides data on appropriate comparison groups. However, the evaluation cannot be used to measure program improvements on an annual basis.

 

Objective 8.2 of 2: INCREASE POSTSECONDARY PERSISTENCE AND COMPLETION RATES OF LOW-INCOME, FIRST-GENERATION INDIVIDUALS IN THE ACADEMIC PIPELINE.
Indicator 8.2.1 of 2: Postsecondary persistence and completion: Percentages of Student Support Services participants persisting and completing a degree at the same institution.

Explanation: Data from the national evaluation of Student Support Services provides the baseline data. The performance reports are and will be used to determine if the performance targets are met. The long-term goals for SSS are to increase the persistence and completion rates to 70% and 31%, respectively, by 2007. The college completion baseline of 29% includes only SSS students who remain at the same school through graduation. It has been set at this level because the annual performance reports will only report the academic progress of SSS participants that remain at the grantee institution. The national evaluation indicates that 68% of SSS participants complete at least an Associates degree at any college within 6 years. The long-term goal is intended to increase this rate to 70%.
