Next Data Available: October 2006
 
Explanation: The undergraduate graduation rates are calculated as the number of graduates in one year over the number of entering students six years previously. Graduation from MSSD is more than completion of required course work. Graduation signals that students have successfully met their IEP goals, so that graduation becomes an Individualized Education Program (IEP) decision. Students may graduate at the end of their senior year, or they may make the decision, as part of the IEP process, to return to MSSD for a fifth year to pursue their IEP goals. As of FY 2005, the graduate rate was disaggregated to show those who graduate after four years and those who exercise a 5th-year option. The FY 2005 data only reports those who graduated after their senior year. The second year seniors (5th-year option) for FY 2005 will be reported after June 2006; the Annual Graduation rate will be calculated at that time.
 
Objective 2 of 3: Gallaudet works in partnership with others to develop and disseminate educational programs and materials for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
Indicator 2.1 of 1: Use of the demonstration schools' expertise: Other programs and/or institutions adopting innovative curricula and other products, or modifying their strategies as a result of Model and Kendall's leadership, will be maintained or increased.
 
Measure 2.1.1 of 1: The number of programs adopting Model/Kendall innovative strategies/curricula.

Explanation: The number of new programs adopting innovations from year to year will vary and depends in part on the number and type of strategies and curricula being disseminated by the Clerc Center and the financial and personnel resources available within other programs for training and implementation activities.
 
Objective 3 of 3: Curriculum and extracurricular activities prepare students to meet the skill requirements of the workplace or to continue their studies.
Indicator 3.1 of 2: Employment and advanced studies opportunities at the university: Gallaudet's bachelor's graduates will either find employment commensurate with their training and education or attend advanced education or training programs during their first year after graduation.
 
Measure 3.1.1 of 1: The percentage of graduates who are employed or in advanced education or training during the first year after graduation.

Explanation: The FY 2006 target for the new category is to establish a baseline. Employed includes both full and part-time employment. Advanced education or training includes students enrolled in a master's or Ph.D. program, a vocational or technical program, or another type of program (e.g., law school or medical school).
 
Indicator 3.2 of 2: Employment and advanced studies opportunities at the Model Secondary School: A high percentage of the Model Secondary School graduates will either find jobs commensurate with their training or will attend postsecondary programs.
 
Measure 3.2.1 of 1: The percentage of Model Secondary School graduates who are in jobs or postsecondary programs four months after graduation.

Next Data Available: October 2006
 
Explanation: In 2007, this will be changed to percentage of Model Secondary School graduates who are in jobs or postsecondary programs during first year after graduation. In addition we will disaggregate this indicator to three categories of students; those in post-secondary education or training, those employed, and those who are not engaged in either activity.
