Limitations: OME is working with grantees to provide detailed information within the annual performance reports.
 
Explanation: This is a long-term target. This measure differs from a similar FY 2005 performance measure in focusing on the percentage of participants who receive the GED, rather than complete the program and receive the GED, to more accurately reflect data collected from grantees.
 
Objective 2 of 2: An increasing percentage of HEP participants in the GED will enter postsecondary education programs, career positions, or the military.
Indicator 2.1 of 1: Post-GED placement: The percentage of HEP participants who earn the GED and enter postsecondary education programs, career positions, or the military will continue to be high, if not increase.
 
Measure 2.1.1 of 1: The percentage of HEP participants who earn the GED and enter postsecondary education programs, career positions, or the military.
