HEA: AID Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions - FY 2006


CFDA Number: 84.031S - Title V Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program

Program Goal: To improve the capacity of minority-serving institutions, which traditionally have limited resources and serve large numbers of low-income and minority students, to improve student success and to provide high-quality educational opportunities for their students.

Objective 1 of 4: Increase enrollments of Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs).
Indicator 1.1 of 1: Student enrollment: Full-time degree-seeking undergraduate enrollment at HSIs
 
Measure 1.1.1 of 1: The number of full-time degree-seeking undergraduates enrolling at HSIs.

Survey/Assessment: Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System.
Web Site: http://nces.ed.gov/ipedspas/

Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: December 2006

Data Validated By: NCES.
Data supplied by institutions, which certify the accuracy of the data.
 
Explanation: Fall enrollment data will be monitored annually to measure progress in meeting the long-term target, which is projected to be met in 2009. Target is derived by applying the difference between regression-based predicted values from Title IV institutions and actual grantee values for school year 2002-03 -- which was 5.1%. Therefore, the HSI program actual enrollment of 773,859 in FY 2003 was multiplied by 1.051 to generate the target of 813,326.
 
Objective 2 of 4: Increase the persistence rate for students enrolled at HSIs.
Indicator 2.1 of 1: Persistence rate: First year persistence rate of students attending HSIs
 
Measure 2.1.1 of 1: The percentage of full-time undergraduate students who were in their first year of postsecondary enrollment in the previous year and are enrolled in the current year at the same HSI institution.

Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: December 2006

Data Validated By: NCES.
Data supplied by institutions, which certify the accuracy of the data.
 
Explanation: The FY 2004 data established the baseline. Institutions report a persistence rate, not the numerator and denominator. As a result, the persistence rate for the HSI program is calculated as a median. Target is derived by applying the difference between regression-based predicted values from Title IV institutions and actual grantee values for school year 2003-04 -- which was 1.12%. Therefore, the HSI program actual persistence rate of 67% in FY 2004 was multiplied by 1.0112 to generate the long-term target (for 2009) of 68%. Annual increases are estimated to be 0.2% each year through 2009 and 0.1% beginning in 2010.
 
Objective 3 of 4: Increase the graduation rate for students enrolled at HSIs
Indicator 3.1 of 1: Graduation rate: The graduation rate of students enrolled at HSIs will increase.
 
Measure 3.1.1 of 2: The percentage of students enrolled at four-year HSIs graduating within six years of enrollment.

Survey/Assessment: Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System.
Web Site: http://nces.ed.gov/ipedspas/

Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: December 2006

Data Validated By: NCES.
Data supplied by institutions, which certify the accuracy of the data.
 
Explanation: Data for FY 2003 was recalculated and is now more accurate than previously reported. Target for four-year graduation rate is derived by applying the difference between regression-based predicted values from Title IV institutions and actual grantee values for school year 2002-03 -- which was 3.54%. Therefore, the HSI program actual four-year graduation rate of 35% in FY 2003 was multiplied by 1.0354 to generate the long-term target (for 2009) of 36%. Annual increases are estimated to be 0.6% through 2009 and 0.3% beginning in 2010. For the two-year graduation rate projections, program experience was used to estimate targets. An increase of 0.5% was used to generate annual targets each year through 2009 and an increase of 0.3% was used beginning in 2010.
 
Objective 4 of 4: Improve the efficiency of service delivery to HSI students.
Indicator 4.1 of 1: Efficiency measure: Cost per successful program outcome.
 
Measure 4.1.1 of 1: Federal cost for undergraduate and graduate degrees at institutions in the Developing HSI program.

Survey/Assessment: Adult Literacy and Lifeskills Survey.
Web Site: http://nces.ed.gov/ipedspas

Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: December 2006

Data Validated By: NCES.
Data supplied by institutions, which certify the accuracy of the data.
 
Explanation: This measure is calculated as the appropriation for the Developing HSIs program divided by the number of undergraduate and graduate degrees awarded. This is a new efficiency measure. The 2003 actual value reflects an appropriation of $92.396 million divided by 87,326 graduates. The actual FY 2004 value reflects an appropriation of $93.993 million divided by 92,216 graduates.
