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 enrollment at Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs). |
Indicator 1.1 of 1: Student enrollment: Full-time degree-seeking undergraduate enrollment 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 extended to FY 2009 to generate the target value 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 |
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: The FY 2004 data established the baseline. Data value for 2004 had previously been erroneously assigned to 2003. 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 66.5% 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. |
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: The FY 2003 data established the baseline. Data for FY 2003 were recalculated and is now more accurate than that 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 35%. 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. |
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: This measure is calculated as appropriation for the Developing HSIs program divided by the number of undergraduate and graduate degrees awarded. The $1,058 actual value per successful outcome for 2003 reflects an appropriation of $92.396 million divided by 87,326 graduates. The $1,030 actual value for 2004 reflects an appropriation of $93.993 million divided by 91,216 graduates. |
