|Targets and Performance Data||Assessment of Progress||Sources and Data Quality|
Explanation: The percentage of HEP students who receive the GED decreased for several reasons. First, the GED requirements changed. Secondly, grantees had difficulties getting students tested at GED testing centers. Finally many of the centers were not prepared to test in Spanish. In addition new projects experienced difficulties because of late grant notification dates.
