Source: HEP grantee performance reports.
Next Data Available: April 2006
Data Validated By: No Formal Verification.
Limitations: OME is working with grantees to provide detailed information in its annual performance reports.
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. The performance targets are developed by dividing the number of HEP students who received the GED by the number of students funded to be enrolled in GED instruction.
